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 ?

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.

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!

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 ...

Haven't had a vacation in a while, and am looking to go south (I've never been to the Caribbean or to Mexico from December 26th to December 31 (5 days). My GF wants to have a 'normal' vacation, with beach, reading, etc., and I'm ok with that a little, but would LOVE to climb something too!

Looking for climbing buddy on Iztaccihuatl in late december

Guys,

I'm heading down to mexico for the end of december/ beginning of january. I am going down with a crew of guys and was really wanting to make it to the top of iztaccihuatl. Unfortunately I couldn't convince my crew to join in on the action. That leaves me with the feat of having to climb the mountain solo. Although I don't doubt my ability to climb the mountain, i'd hate for something to ...
