Valle de Bravo

Two hours from Mexico City, tucked into the mountains on the shores of Lake Avandaro, is the picturesque town of Valle de Bravo, often called the Switzerland of Meixco. Designated a Pueblo Magico (Magical Town) by Mexico´s Sectretary of Tourism, Valle de Bravo is a popular weekend getaway for wealthy Mexicans, who sail, kayak, go horseback riding,  kite surf on the lake and paraglide above the verdant pine forests. Valle hosted the equestrian events for Mexico's 1968 Olympic Games, and each year attracts people from around Mexico and the world for the International Paragliding Championships.


Due to its natural beauty, colonial architecture and small size, Valle de Bravo is a great place for pre and post-event activities. 


For a truly unique experience, Valle de Bravo offers visitors excellent boutique hotels. The Rodavento River & Mountain Hotel is a luxurious hotel located on the outskirts of the town, hidden in the forest beside a private lake. The hotel has 28 guestrooms each with a private terrace that looks out on the forest. It also has an outdoor pool, a restaurant, and two meeting areas, one with a capacity for 120 guests and the other for 40 guests. Each comes with audiovisual equipment and support.


The El Santuario Hotel & Spa is on the side of the Millennial Quartz Mountain. It has 64 luxury eco-rooms, a 9-hole par three golf course, an horse riding club, a marina, tennis courts and a swimming pool. The hotel provides three event spaces with a maximum capacity of 800 guests and a garden with a capacity of  100 guests for all kinds of events.


Valle de Bravo is easily accessible by car or bus. The trip itself is worth it for the fantastic views it affords of the state of Mexico’s landscape. The bus ride from Mexico City lasts three hours, while a bus ride form Toluca takes two hours.
