The first bus ('collectivo') for La Malintzi from Apizaco leaves at 8.20 am from the corner of Av. Hidalgo and Av. Serdan (in front the 'Elektra' store). Come in time because it fills up fast with people working at the 'centro vacacional'. It drops you off at 9 am at the entrance of the centro vacacional, where the trail starts. To return, there is a bus at 1pm, 3pm and at 5pm, which is the last one, but it gives you more than enough time to summit, go down and have a late lunch. The bus fare is 20 pesos one way.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
