We highly recommend Yacana Outdoors for anybody looking for a custom guide service. Ricardo assessed our needs and established a full service itinerary for our team. This included some minor gear rentals, transportation, and overnight stays where needed. The trip was accentuated by his expert guide service coupled with another guide he secured for our team of 5. We enjoyed every aspect of our expedition with his professionalism, patience, and service orientation. We are pleased to report he exceeded our expectations and we accomplished successful summits on Pico de Orizaba and Iztaccihuatl

Ricardo and Yacana Outdoors provided a wonderful guided experience for our crew last week clmbing Pico de Orizaba and also Itza. Ricardo and his buddy, Mauricio, guided five (5) of us up Pico on Friday, November 12. In addition to guiding us on Pico, they picked us up at the Mexico City airport, provided transportation to Tlachichuca, hosted us in the Servimont Hostel with Geraldo and his team, and then guided us up and down Pico. It was a great experience and one that I recommend highly. Then, we left Pico and headed towards Izta, and we set up camp on Saturday evening for a early alpine start up Itza. One team went for the summit and were successful, and the other team chose to hike around the Izta mountains and trails. Both groups achieved their desired results. Then, lastly, Ricardo and Yacana Outdoors dropped us off at our hotel back in Mexico City for a final night before we headed back to the US. Yacana Outdoors did a great job throughout the entire trip - they provided transportation, all the food we needed, lodging options, technical gear that we needed, and expertise on both of these mountains. We are experienced mountaineers/alpinists, but we are so glad that we chose Yacana Outdoors to guide us. Thanks again, Ricardo and Mauricio for the wonderful adventure! Dean Flora

Pico De Orizaba tour was a great and unique experience. I suggest this tour to everyone that likes outdoor activities and mountains, and also to fit people that want something different from the beaches of Yucatan or Baja California.

For the full hike I was surrounded by only nature, and I felt completely safe thanks to my very experienced and professional guide Mauricio.
In general, I liked much the service quality and support provided by Pepe and Ricardo, and I will definitely join other Yacana Outdoor tours in the future! Highly recommended

Hi Yacana

My friends and I thank you for the unforgettable guiding experience at the highest peaks in Mexico "Pico de Orizaba and Volcan Iztaccihuatl". Sorry for the delay in dropping a review, it has been such a difficult year for everyone that I almost forgot. I have to admit, it was a difficult climb specially the "Pico de Orizaba". However, with the very distinct landscapes and scenery, it gives you a complete different view of Mexico, I wish I had brought my snowboard lol. I look forward to the next hike with Yacana in the near future, let me know when Peru is added to your trips.

I want to congratulate Yacana outdoors for their superb organization and friendly experience. Mails were answered in minutes and provided concrete information regarding everything I needed from physical to nutrition. The hike with Ricardo was absolutely incredible, he knows well the mountains and paced me so we could reach the sunrise at the glacier of Orizaba. Couldn't be happier! Thanks a lot Yacana team and Ricardo!
