Mexican Mushroom Tours 2013
Morelos and Edomex
For Fungi Aficionados with a Sense of Adventure
Our 2013 foray was in a new, exciting location for us in Mexico – the Morelos and Edomex area in the central highlands south of Mexico City.
With lush forests, lakes, mountains and an abundance of history, culture, archeology and marvelous scenery, the region offered great mushroom foraying and much more. We stayed in four enchanting “pueblos magicos” – government-designated “magical towns” selected for their charm, history, architecture and traditions.
Included in the itinerary were places like the mystical pueblo of Tepoztlan, the lakeside forests of enchanting Valle de Bravo, the surroundings of the hot springs of Ixtapan de la Sal, the extinct, snow-capped Nevado de Toluca volcano and some very special archeological and historical sites. Beyond the exciting travel aspects, the focus of this August 2013 excursion was still, of course, on all facets of mushrooms and mycology, under the guidance of our top Mexican bilingual mycologist, Dr. Arturo Estrada and expert co-leader, David Lewis. And nobody was disappointed – we collected more than 400 species of fungi.
