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

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

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
