What you'll do

We will meet at the accorded place. I will pick you up very early in the morning and hit the road to the Nevado de Colima. After 1.5 hours of driving on the highway we will start the dirt road on car for 1 more hour (total driving 2.5 hours). We will park the car and start the ascent to the south summit (the tallest one) at 4260 m.a.s.l. (meters above sea level; this is 15,160 ft). It is a 2.5-3.5 hour walk to the summit.

THERE IS A CHANCE OF SNOW IN THE WINTER MONTHS, if so, I will let you know if you need extra equipment.

Once we get to the summit we will enjoy out snacks and hopefully gaze at Colima´s Fire Volcano an active stratovolcano, this will depend on the weather.

The descent if much more fun! We will pass aside the Devil´s Cave and use the sandy hillsides to advance more quickly. Finally we will end the walk on a gorgeous coniferous forest.

Once in the car we can visit the city of Guzman and eat some tostadas as a reward!

After that I´ll take you back to the starter point in Guadalajara.
Other things to note
It is important to know that we will be walking on high altitude. Mountain sickness can occur. If somebody is feeling medium mountain sickness we will need to go back down to avoid health issues.

My name is Manuel. I am an adventure seeker. I have being practicing mountain hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking for more than 10 years. Doing outdoor activities has always been my passion. I have hiked mountains all over Mexico. Naturally since Nevado de Colima is close to my home town it is like my second home.

Where you'll be

We will visit the 7th tallest mountain in Mexico and try to make it to the summit!

We can also visit the local town and eat some tostadas by the Cathedral without towers. They fell off during THE earthquake of 1985.
