A cultural giant of the Americas, Mexico is a vast and diverse country steeped in history. While its beach resorts are an ever-popular option among tourists, Mexico offers a range of regions to visit and activities to keep you busy, including its numerous archaeological sites, cosmopolitan neighbourhoods, and mountain ranges. While perhaps not as well-known for its mountaineering as other countries in South America, Mexico in recent years has experienced a growth in interest among tourists for its mountaineering options, including Pico de Orizaba, Iztaccihuatl, and Nevado de Toluca.



Iztaccihuatl (5,286m) or "Sleeping Woman" is the third highest mountain in the country. The 2-day ascent of this mountain requires a good level of fitness proper acclimatization, and an overnight stay at the De los Cien hut.



Nevado de Toluca (4,691m) is Mexico's fourth highest mountain and is accessible from Mexico City. The climb offers stunning views of two large lakes (Laguna de la Luna and Laguna del Sol), which are popular destinations for Mexicans who flock to the mountain to see the lakes. This is a good acclimatization peak for those interested in heading to Iztacchihuatl or Orizaba.
