Valle de Bravo is one of Mexico's loveliest colonial towns, set on the gentle shores of scenic, but man-made Lake Avandaro. It's close enough to Mexico City to have become the weekend retreat of anyone who can afford an escape somewhere this stunning. And the hills surrounding the lake are covered in misty forests which offer those who enter a real feeling of being out in the wilderness. Our pick of the best places to stay in Valle de Bravo is a stunning remote forest lodge, where you can truly feel at one with nature.
The colonial old town is just as charming as the setting though, with red roofs and an elegant main square. In fact much of the town's architecture is elegant.
If you're here in October or November you might see the annual international arts festival, the Festival de las Almas, and if you're here in December or January, you just might catch some of the annual migration of the Monarch butterflies.
