  • Ascend to the Matlalcueye or Malintzi is venture to conquer the sixth highest mountain in Mexico and also delve into lands that were constituted in an enclosure that is sacred in our pre-Hispanic past by their important cult deity of water, so is an excellent experience. Starting from Huamantla we drive in road asphalt toward the Malintzi resort and prior to passing a guardhouse of Rangers who watchful care and allow access we got to the point where a "Feather" prevents continue in vehicle, however a few metres there is space for parking. It is the starting point of the hike, following a path or trail with signs painted or marked with ribbons and sometimes runs with the paved road, until you reach a trash can from which continuous ascending in the forest where pine trees, Montezuma pine trees and firs make you company for a few hours... The slope is too pronounced in a good stretch and overcome once the ground yields in difficulty for a few minutes. After the forest zone will take you to a tree that contains some commemorative plaques of climbers and that is the point which marks the 4000 m.a.s.l. From here begins the truly complicated Ascension, as tilt, the sands and then loose stones seriously complicate the advance until you reach the top. To take into account: 1. aspect of security: the Malintzi National Park is an area in which provided security to the Mountaineer situation that has been a pleasant experience as security elements make rounds on Quad bikes, gave us guidance and surveillance and even reach the tree of the 4000 meters above sea level). 2. If there is strong wind assessment continue if you are in the area of stone. 3 I recommend wearing a helmet. 4. admission is free. Enjoy la Malinche. LIFE... is a trip!

  • The volcano is amazing, one can stay at the Centro Vacacional Malintzin, where you can rent a cabin. We left very early to walk with children even though we never got to the top, the hike and coexistence was amazing, the place is safe, the cottages have surveillance, restaurant and shop, (you have to leave it at the appointed time)
