Charco del Ingenio was consecrated as a Peace Zone by the Dalai Lama during his visit to México. The area instills peace and harmony, free of violence and weapons, and is dedicated to nature conservation and community development.

ENJOY A PANORAMIC VIEW
Explore the expansive natural reserve that houses the botanical garden and traces of an irrigation system dating back to viceregal times. Visit viewpoints that offer unparalleled views.

WALK AMONGST THE BIRDS AND BUTTERFLIES
Visit the bird sanctuary and the butterfly house. Take the little ones to the interactive garden and register them in an artistic workshop or environmental educational workshop where they will learn about and enjoy nature in a multicultural environment.

STROLL THROUGH THE CACTUS GARDEN
Explore one of the most complete collections of cacti and explore a refuge for cactus that are native to the area, along with specimens from other Mexican deserts, many of which are in danger of extinction. Be sure to visit the Mexican Plant Conservatorium, a winter garden designed especially to conserve the rarest species that live in México.

ENJOY THE EL CHARCO TEMAZCAL 
Come to El Charco during the weekend closest to the full moon and enjoy the temazcal, a traditional healing ritual based on steam and aromatic herbs. At the end of your visit, stop at the El Charco Store, which sells organic and artisanal products, books and plants.
