Where you'll be

The hike up to the volcano Xitle is not so hard, because its not a long distance. It's worth because of the beautiful view over Mexico City and the feeling to stay on top of a volcano and its crater...The rappeling into a cave is super save and you don't need experienc.

What a beautiful and unique experience. This was a welcome change to some of my other experiences in the city and a great chance to burn off calories that I've amassed from mezcal and street tacos. Never once did I feel unsafe - I could tell from the get-go that Reto was an expert. Everything was well-organized and thoughtful.

This is a fantastic, once in a lifetime experience... unless you go again, which I WILL! Reto is knowledgable and passionate about these caves and the flora and fauna within. The history of the volcano is something most locals do not know about, but Reto does! You owe it to yourself to experience this.

This was an AMAZING Experience! I did it for my bday and Reto made it extra special. The truly feel he should charge WAY MORE than what he does for all you get. This is a once in a lifetime experience. We felt extra safe with the rapelling (I been doing this for years).

Reto was awesome, and so was this experience. He made us feel comfortable with some of our fears going rappeling for the first time or seeing a few bats (which I must note were doing their own thing and did not bother us one bit). Reto was so accomodating and friendly, and is a passionate outdoor adventurer. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience and I recommend anybody who has the opportunity to go on this experience with him !
