The agency did not anticipate the crowd visiting the sanctuary. We waited more that 2 hours in the woods in a crowd of about 5000 visitors and after having heard that we had to wait at least another hour, we decided to leave the site without having seen the butterflies. This

Response from MarieTripToMexico, Manager at MONARCH BUTTERFLY SANCTUARY AND COSMOVITRAL PRIVATE TOUR from Mexico City
Responded 20 Feb. 2020
We are sorry to hear your experience was not a good one. We try our best to pleased travelers and assist them with whatever might come out, but remember the Sanctuary is a public place and the particular date you visit was Valentine´s Holiday and later on we were told some big groups arrived, so that´s the main reason for the crowded site. Then again, price is based on the 24/7 assistance, the bilingual guide only for you, the private transfers to the sites plus the stop to wherever you wanna have lunch. So is really a full day dedicated just for you. We hope to have another chance with you to compensate this experience.
