Mexico City, Discover the magical atmosphere of the Fireflies

Departure from Mexico City to downtown Tlaxcala where we will make a tour visiting the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption in Tlaxcala, considered today one of the oldest and beautiful for being unique in its kind to have its bell tower separate from the convent and keep inside a coffered ceiling Mudejar style. The state of Tlaxcala is identified by its great bullfighting tradition so we will make a Panoramic Tour through the Plaza de Toros Jorge Aguilar "El Ranchero". It is considered one of the most beautiful in the country because the tower of the Cathedral escorts this jewel of Tlaxcaltecan bullfighting. Free time to eat. 

We continue to Rancho Pulquero where we will make a tour of the Magueyera with explanation and demonstration of the various varieties of maguey capason and extraction of aguamiel. At night we will venture through a walk to the magical forest of Nanacamilpa in which every year there is an incredible natural phenomenon in which thousands of fireflies turn the dark night into a light show. 

Each year, the fireflies visit the municipalities of Nanacamilpa to reproduce thanks to the fact that this area of more than 200 hectares offers the ideal conditions of humidity and feeding for the fireflies. 22:30 hrs Departure from the Sanctuary to Mexico City. 24:00 Hrs.
