In August 2003 we camped on the side of the lagoon without a permit (didn't know we had to get one), and no one came around to bug us. There are several sites where rocks have been formed in box or U shapes, great for shelter from the wind.

Watch out for the cows which wander around!

I believe the correct coordinates for the Nevado are:

19 degrees 6 minutes 51 seconds N

99 degrees 46 minutes 4 seconds W

If you use these on Google Earth you can see the lagunas of the Sun and Moon.

I hope that this information is useful

The 2006 price for a stay in the refugio / park hut at 4,050 is 65 pesos or about $6 USD.

It is basic but fairly nice. There are 3 rooms of 4 bunks with mattresses. And there is a 4 burner propane stove.

Hitchhiking up the road to the refuge seems easy. I had no problem doing so midweek (Jan 2006).

Also you are not charged any entrance fee if you walk through the park gate by the first "campamiento".
