México State / Estado de México

Because of the irregular shape of this largest populated state in the county, Estado de México actually has borders with 8 other México states.

Here active travelers can hike into the crater of a volcano, explore Aztec cliff dwellings in Malinalco, visit many museums in the capital city of Toluca, waterski on a beautiful manmade lake adjacent to Valle de Bravo, climb the great pyramids of Teotihuacan, and marvel at viewing thousands of monarch butterflies who migrate each fall to the western region of this state.

With the State of México being so close to the metropolis of México City, it is a favorite place for its residence to escape big city life for a few days. For foreign travelers staying in México City, some of these places in Estado de México can be visited in a one day tour from the big city.
