Costa Rica with kids

Hi

We're going to Costa Rica. Our children are 12 and 10 and we're a fit and active family.
In general looking for any other advice and cool tips for family adventures in Costa Rica.
Thinking of climbing Cerro Chirripo - is it a suitable climb for kids who have only previously climbed our British peaks, albeit quite a lot of them?
Where's the best place to stay in Tortuguero? And how long do you ...

Climbing volcanoes- Central Mexico safe?

I'm planning a trip to Mt. Iztaccihuatl this November and want to find out how safe travel is now in the region. The plan is to drive from Mexico City to Amecameca, then to San Rafael to take the El Caracol trail. Have any of you been to Iztaccihuatl or Orizaba within the last year or so? If so did you have any trouble with crime or crooked authorities? Anyone had success with leaving a ...

Isla Espíritu Santo's highpoint, accessible? (Baja)

Looks like I'm trading in the piolet for the paddle for awhile..
Hey, anybody have any info on hiking/hiking trails on Ilsa Espirtu Santo in Baja? Is hiking even allowed because it's a protected area?
Specially, is the island highpoint hike-able or even accessible ?

I did find this, but it's not much help ...

Climbing Partner Needed: Orizaba and Iztaccihuatl April 2014

I know its a bit late in the season but I will be looking to climb Orizaba and Iztaccihuatl sometime in the first two weeks of April. I'm doing this as part of a longer road-trip so I have my own transportation which we can use. Looking to hire a guide and share the expenses for that.

A Note about myself: I am a 24yo beginner climber from India and the only 5k+ ascents I ...

Izta: looking for an update

If anyone's been up Izta recently I'd appreciate any information regarding snow conditions. Does anyone know if the Altzomoni hut is open?

The last time I was there, it was necessary to get a permit from the park office in Amecameca, but I heard that it is no longer necessary, and payment can be made on the way to the Paso de Cortez. Can anyone confirm this is now the case?

Thanks!

Woodie

Nevado de Colima in February

I am visiting some family near Lake Chapala in Jalisco state this February and while I am down there I would love to climb the dormant Nevado de Colima (not the more active Volcan de Fuego which I understand to be off-limits).

Looking around online I am hampered by not being Spanish-speaking but from the looks of it there are a few bi-lingual guide companies out there. I am sure I could solo this but ...
