Located in western México, Michoacán (mich-OH-ah-CAN) is one of the most diverse states
in the country. Lakes, volcanoes, rivers, forests, subtropical regions and 220 kms. of beautiful
coastline are all part of this fascinating state.
Among its numerous treasures, the State shelters one of the rarest natural attractions appreciated by people all over the world: The Monarch Butterfly Sanctuaries. These beautiful creatures can be visited and admired in all their
glory during the months of November through March.
Morelia, the state capital, was declared a Cultural Human Heritage in 1991 by UNESCO due to its unparalleled historical and cultural value.
This is a great option for the holidaymaker who wants to come home with more than a tan. Immerse yourself - or just dabble! - in a side of Mexico that many tourists never get to see. History, cuisine, music and culture are all part of a
holiday to Michoacán.
