What you'll do

I will pick you up in Mexico City 5:00 AM -yes sorry, but this is the only way to avoid traffic jams and catch first light of the day. The Van is big so you will be able to take a good sleep on our way to Popocatépetl Active Volcano, its ancient nahuatl name means: words popōca [poˈpoːka] "it smokes" and tepētl [ˈtepeːt͡ɬ] "mountain" It's considered one of the most beautiful active volcanoes in the world. When you wake up I will offer you hot coffee and snacks, you will see the 2 km (6,500 ft) high vent, if we are lucky we will hear the roaring of the colossal 5,426 m (17,800 ft) high volcano. We will park at 3,800 meters - (12,400 ft) I will provide you Trekking Poles and we will begin our 2 hour Trek of the beautiful surroundings. Paso de Cortés is this mountain high pass between Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl Volcanoes, it gets its name from Spaniard Conquistador Hernan Cortés, who came across this two giants on his way to "La Gran Tenochtitlán 1492" The famous Aztec City, now Mexico City. After our Active Volcano Trek we will have lunch at local Amecameca Town Mercado, it doesn't get more traditional and local than this, you will taste among others Pozole, Quesadillas, Tacos, Tortillas and more, I will also guide trough this unique culinary and cultural experience. We will be back in Mexico City around 4 PM.
