|VALLE DE BRAVO|
Just 90 miles west of Mexico City, but worlds apart...lies Valle de Bravo. This quaint town is perched on a hilltop, in a beautiful pine forest away from the smog and traffic of Mexico City. Valle is one of the favorite places for city residents to spend weekends and holidays. This ex-colonial town is like something out of a historical novel. It sits on a hillside overlooking the pleasant lake with winding cobblestone streets and beautiful colonial style homes. Gardens alive with colorful plants and walls covered in brightly hued bougainvillea dominate the landscape, adding a picturesque touch to the streets and homes of the community.
The lake, actually a reservoir, is a peaceful place for sailing, water skiing, fishing (for bass & perch) and other water sports. Boats for fishing, skiing or just relaxing can be rented in the small marina, near the dock. The surrounding hills and forests are a great place for hiking, mountain biking, camping or just exploring.
