The climb up to the summit of Nevado de Toluca was definitely a crowning highlight of my trip to Mexico. Although it is by no means a stroll in the park, I was grateful that I didn't have to be a mountaineer to reach the summit of the fourth highest peak in Mexico and the seventeenth highest peak in North America. The views throughout the entire hike are magnificent and stirring. Our guide Johannes was fantastic. He was very patient and easygoing, always very watchful to potential altitude sickness issues. He has taken trekkers up Nevado de Toluca over a hundred times, so you are definitely in good hands. I would highly recommend this trek up to the summit. This is the Mexico of storied volcanoes, one I will always remember fondly.

This is a hard climb, it is an 11km with 900m of elevation gain with some very steep parts (up then down) but the views on top are totally worth it. The transportation and the food were fine but could have been better for the price paid. The guide was good and the equipment and the equipment as well (they provide hiking sticks and a small backpack with water and snack). I would recommend but bear in mind that you need to know what you're getting into.

Very well organized! We were small group of 6 people and 2 guides, I wasn't as physically prepared as the others. Anyway one of the guides fits a short version of the route for me so with less efforts I managed to climb the volcano, not to the pick but enough to be satisfied with the achievement and experience. Thank you, Rodrigo and Monserat for the professionalism and kind attitude!
