Valle de Bravo is a lovely colonial town that has been nicknamed “The Magic Town” thanks to its natural beauty and splendid architecture. The town’s fusion of abundant nature and colonial details has made it a cultural hotspot with a wide selection of exciting activities.
On the lake, you can enjoy a variety of watersports such as sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, water skiing, fishing, rowing, and jet skiing.
The mountain and its forest offer you the chance to try motocross, paragliding, go-karts, gotcha, golf, and countless other activities.
We additionally recommend visiting local attractions like the Mercado de Artesanías (Artesanal Market), Maranatha (Spiritual Center for Barefoot Carmelites), Iglesia de Santa María del Cristo Negro (Temple of Saint Mary of Ahuacatlan, featuring the Black Christ), el Santuario de la Mariposa Monarca (Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary), La Peña (The Crag), and La Cascada Velo de Novia (Bridal Veil Cascade).
Additionally, Valle has many prestigious restaurants that offer a variety of gastronomic delights, which include Mexican fare as well as International cuisines.
With respect to nightlife, there are plenty of places to go for a fun night on the town. There is also the option of taking an evening ride on the lake in a sailboat with live music.
We hope you will enjoy this “Magic Town” and its natural beauty, its architecture, its artisanal goods, and its infinite attractions, but, most of all, the warmth of its people.
