We took a tour from Puebla. The journey to Paso de Cortes is much more difficult than from the Mexico City / Amecameca side because there is no paved road. The journey up was over an hour of very bumpy, rutted "road" in October, maybe it is better when the ground is drier. We didn't mind as we took a... More

Paseo Cortes in the middle of the vulcanos Popocatepel and Iztaccihuatl is a wonderful place. You can just watch the montain scenerie, eat something from the "food-court", or enjoy a walk in the direction of the Iztaccihuatl.

I went to Paso de Cortés with the intention to do a short hike, no climbing. Unfortunately I did not get to hike or see the volcanoes because it was cloudy, rainy, and muddy when I arrived, but regardless, it was a pleasant drive up from Amecameca to the Paso. The roads are in good condition. There was only one... More

Paso de Cortes or the Iztaccihuatl-Popocatepetl National Park is great for a few hours hike in nature and even better when it's cloud free when you can get great views. To my knowledge I believe you may need a permit to hike on certain trails (I'm not sure which ones). Iztaccihuatl is an extinct volcano so it is possible to... More

can do great hiking here. Start from Paso de Cortes and walk to the slopes of the Izta volcano (8 KM). Or drive up to the Izta and start climbing the Izta. Go early since it could start snowing / getting cold in the afternoon in spring/winter. Good quesadillas at the starting point for climbing the Izta. When climbing the... More
