What you'll do

This will be a beginner level hike up the Izta volcano. This is a great way to experience nature just outside of Mexico City, see some of the rural areas of Mexico and learn about the history of the area. We will meet early morning in La Condesa neighborhood of Mexico City and begin our journey. We will make a 45-minute drive to the town of Amecameca, which sits at the base of the Iztaccihuatl and Popocatépetl and volcanos. We will eat breakfast in the market of Amecameca, then drive up to the Paso de Cortés to begin our hike. Once registering in the park ranger office, we will drive into the Izta-Popo Zoquiapan National Park and make our way to the La Joya meeting point. From there we will begin our trek. This will be a beginner level hike. There are multiple stopping points along the way. We can hike as far as our group likes. We will have a small snack on the volcano and take in the views of the neighboring Popo volcano. We will return to Amecameca for a hamburger at a local craft brewpub, then return to Mexico City. I will photograph the experience and provide the photos to the participants after.

The scenes on the hike are breathtaking. The vegetation along the way is very interesting. The exper
