I was finishing up my PhD in cultural anthropology at UCLA when I went to see the monarch butterflies in Mexico, and fell in love--with Mexico, the butterflies, and my guide (now husband), Joel Moreno. Together we've worked to turn his large house in the rural ejido of Macheros into JM Butterfly B&B. This will be our fifth season--see our reviews on tripadvisor for more info on what staying with us is like. Since moving here I've started a garden, learned how to make salsa in a mocajete, and learned a lot about what it's like to live in an extended family with 10 siblings, all of whom live on the same block.
