Its very small, about 5 stores, 3 restaurants and bunch of houses on the hill. It's (w niebie) in the mountains surrounded by many different types of greens from pine trees, ganja to psychedelic mushrooms. It's also known as the Mushroom town.

We came here with Ivan, one of the drummers that we met in Zipolite. We stayed in a small place on a steep hill, very psychedelic.

Mariposa Monarca. Reserva Mariposa Monarca. In the easternmost corner of Michoacán, straddling the border of México state, lies the incredible 563-sq-km Reserva Mariposa Monarca.
Every autumn, from late October to early November, millions of monarch butterflies flock to these forested Mexican highlands for their winter hibernation, having flown all the way from the Great Lakes region of the US and Canada, some 4500km away. As they close in on their destination they gather in gentle swarms, crossing highways and fluttering up steep mountainsides where they cling together in clusters that weigh down thick branches of the oyenal (fir) trees. When the sun rises and warms the forest, they take to the sky in gold and orange flurries, descending to the humid forest floor for the hottest part of the day. By midafternoon they often carpet the ground brilliantly. The best time to see them is on a warm, sunny afternoon in February – they don’t fly as much in cool weather. The reserve areas are spread out, and most people only visit one.

You can sense it before you can see it, a strangely mythical atmosphere supercharged by the thick tropical air and mingled with swirling mists of the Sierra de Las Tuxtlas mountains near Vera Cruz, Mexico. This is Olmec country, one of the most ancient cultures of the Americas, home of the famous giant stone faces of La Venta, and the place where many legends and myths were born; where many still survive. Catemaco, Mexico, is known far and wide as the Mexico's (some say World) 'Capital of Witchcraft', a place where you can easily find a cure for any curse; where supernatural healing awaits at every turn; where you can hire a witch to perform a curse on someone you don't like, or offer an herbal remedy for most anything that ails you. March is the perfect time for traveling to Catemaco if you want to attend the annual "Noche de Brujas", or the Night of the Witches annual celebration.
