• Hiking the Volcano Nevado de Toluca Ecotour

    Outside Toks Navarte Restaurant at Metro Etiopia

    $65.00

    Let´s go hiking the Volcano Nevado de Toluca (ecotrip).

    The meeting point is at 6.45am, and departure at 7.0am, please arrive on time not to miss the tour.

    The Nevado de Toluca is a large stratovolcano in central Mexico, located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Mexico City near the city of Toluca. It is generally cited as the fourth highest of Mexico's peaks, after Pico de Orizaba, Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl.

    With our van/small bus we can drive up near the volcano and after a steep but nice walk of about 30 to 40 minutes we have great views on the volcano crater. There are two crater lakes on the floor of the basin that we can visit on a walk of about 1 to 1,5 hours, at about 4,200 m (13,800 ft), the larger Lago del Sol (Sun Lake) and the smaller, but deeper, Lago de la Luna (Moon Lake). If you just like to walk up to the crater to enjoy the great views that is also possible.

    The trip is bit heavy, we take it slow to get ajusted to the hight; you can make the trip as heavy as you want, during this great encounter with nature.

  • Day trip TOLANTONGO exploring the natural park, river and caves - 1 DAY

    Outside Toks Navarte Restaurant at Metro Etiopia

    $70.00

    Let´s explore the beautiful natural park, river,waterfalls and caves of Grutas de Tolantongo together!

    The natural park of Tolantongo is built along a box canyon, open on one end and closed on the other. The mountains around the canyon are volcanic, heating the water to steamy temperatures and infusing it all with minerals, forming some of the world's loveliest hot springs. And whether you'd prefer to just soak in all this natural beauty for as long as possible, or you want something a little more exciting, all is posible.

    There are several ways to enjoy this Mexican geothermal wonderland. The first is to explore the tunnel and cave - this grotto features a warm, spring-fed pool and river, and also has warm, mineral-rich water misting in from the walls and ceiling... it's basically like an all-natural sauna, with a pool for swimming. If that's a little too steamy for you, then a dip in the slightly cooler river might be more your speed. The flowing water provides an almost massage-like effect, and its mesmerizing blue adds to the effect... not only does it make the whole experience feel more magical, but the water's color comes from salts and minerals dissolved in it: perfect for soaking in.

    You can get an exfoliating mask or mud treatment to further the relaxation. You can also enjoy hiking and camping in this serene environment. If you can't get enough unwinding, then head to the waterfall pools, natural springs that have been dammed up to create 40 or so cliffside travertine terraces, each with natural spring water for bathing and relaxing. They've also got ziplines and an epic suspension bridge... because the experience of getting an adrenaline rush from the zipline and then coming down from that high in a cliffside hot spring is kind of the best :-).

    The price is 1350 Mexican Pesos / maximum 10 persons,and includes private transport for our group, experienced driver, and explanations in Spanish and English and entrance to Tolantongo. Please send a whatsapp to [masked] (Lidia Herrera) to ask if there are still places available, to confirm your participation and to receive the payment information (you can pay either by transfer, by cash deposit at any Banamex bank or cash payment at any Oxxo store). It is important to pay at least 5/7 days before the trip, to make sure we can arrange the right transport for the right amount of people.

This river runs through the main gorge for more than 12 kilometers and on it, beautiful waterfalls are formed that in some cases exceed 3.5 meters in height. Los Dinamos is named like this because at the time of the Porfiriato (1876 - 1911, the 35 years when General Porfirio Díaz ruled Mexico, ending in the Mexican Revolution), several electric power plants were built, that used the power of the waters of the Magdalena River, whose main function was to serve some textile factories of the current Magdalena Contreras delegation.
