  • We were with the family of my girlfriend, we walked pass of cortes to antennas, it is a good distance, walking is at least 1 hour and a half and it is upload field so I recommend you wear comfortable tennis and verify climate although it is cold and has wind, Sun is also strong enough. If you go with children make sure you bring water. The landscape is amazing and this pretty well care area. We also saw good surveillance. The only thing that would improve would be food (there are only two cabins to eat) and baths when we were not served.

  • Excellent option to enjoy the scenery and take incredible photos, we wanted takes photographs of the milky way so we arrived at 12:30 am, the road is in very good condition although the last 20 kilometers to arrive are curves by there to take precautions, to get there, there is a parking lot and an Esplanade where you can see the two volcanoes There is also a police station of high mountain that were very attentive with us so the security is good. recommendation if going from night to take Star, carry tripod, battery full by that the temperature is low and is just fast. well sheltered, shoes comfortable and gloves.

  • It is the meeting point to buy access to the Park Izta-Popo, has bathroom and a place to rest where the climate take them by surprise. When there are a lot of people is complicated both move by car, access to the health. There are business that sell antojitos Mexican to satiate the hunger after the activity physical. The view of the volcanoes is wonderful.
