  • From Puebla: Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl Volcanoes Hike

    1. From Puebla: Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl Volcanoes Hike

    After pickup from your accommodation in Puebla, head out towards Iztaccíhuatl-Popocatépetl National Park. After 2 hours, you’ll arrive at La Joyita, where you’ll register with officials and gain a better understanding of the route via a scale model of the volcanoes. From there, you’ll continue driving to La Joya, 13,133 feet above sea level, and the main parking area for volcanic exploration. Begin your hike, climbing to the first scenic viewpoint at 13,914 feet above sea level. Gaze out across the breathtaking vista before climbing even higher, to 14,340 feet, where you’ll pause again, finally ending your hike at an unbelievable 14,842 feet above sea level. Break for lunch, taking in the otherworldly views. Afterwards, you’ll descend back to the parking lots, before heading back to your accommodation.

    The guide and the hike were very nice. The views of Popocatepetl were fantastic. The only problem was that the travel time was not accurate. Due to the condition of the dirt roads, our tour which was supposed to end at 4:00 pm did not end until 7:00 pm.

The guide and the hike were very nice. The views of Popocatepetl were fantastic. The only problem was that the travel time was not accurate. Due to the condition of the dirt roads, our tour which was supposed to end at 4:00 pm did not end until 7:00 pm.
