At a few feet short of 12,000 this is the highest I think I have ever been. Would have been nice to have a bathroom around. There was a place inside the building that sold snacks so why not have a bathroom. We stopped a...More
The drive up to this pass allowed us to get out of the Mexico City smog and get great views of Popo and Izta. It also added context to the invasion of Cortez which remains one of the most amazing historical events I am aware...More
We are riding through Mexico and this route was a great escape from Mexico City. After Mexico City we stayed for a couple of nights at Amecameca which is a nice quiet town and is located at the base of the climb on the Mexico...More
We came here two weeks ago with no expectations and we were impressed by the beauty of the landscape. You can register and then go for hiking on the 7 km trail de la joya which leads to the iztazihuatl. Unfortunately we didn't make it...More
The day we arrived in Amecameca Popo was stunning and emitting quite a lot of steam, gas and ash. Sadly when we went up to the pass early the next morning the peak of the volcano was shrouded in mist/low cloud. In fact it actually...More
We took a tour from Puebla. The journey to Paso de Cortes is much more difficult than from the Mexico City / Amecameca side because there is no paved road. The journey up was over an hour of very bumpy, rutted "road" in October, maybe...More
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.

Hi Alicia! That depends on your condition, it's around 21 km, maybe more, from Amecameca to Paso de Cortés, is not too heavy, but I guess you´ll end up very tired. if you want to do this, I recommend you be early in Amecameca, like 7:00 am to have enough time to enjoy the nature and get back before sunset, if you want to stay in Paso de Cortés, you have another opcion, you can camp in La Joyita, and return to Amecameca next day. I hope this information be helpful, for any cuestions please write me. Sorry for the bad english...
