We drove about 400 kilometers from Ajijic to the town of Angangueo, in the mountains in the eastern part of the state of Michoacan to reach the Sanctuario de Mariposas in El Rosario, but its a 40 minute 4-wheel drive from Angangueo up to the sanctuary, so we spent the night in the best hotel in town, pictured here, but we had to spend an extra 50 pesos for the luxury of a room with heat from a wooden stove. We still had to jam close together under all the covers we could find to keep warm in the night, but isn't that what a honeymoon is for?
