My boyfriend and I will be in Mexico City in early December for 5 nights. I have been to DF several times, but this will be my boyfriend's first time. We are trying to fit a lot of things in a short amount of time, and one of the things we would like to do is go for a day trip outside the city.
My first choice would be to see the Monarch Butterflies in Michoacan - is this possible to do in a day from and back to DF? If so, are there any tour companies that lead such trips? I was once in Michoacan for el Dia de los Muertos, and the butterfly sanctuary was still closed at that time. Is it even worthwhile making this trip at the begining of December?
Thanks for your help!
