How easily can one buy small screw-in butane gas cylinders for European style alpine stoves? We’ll be staying a couple of nights in Mexico City, so have time to search out camping outlets close to the Centro Historico. Are there any good recommendations?
The route to Piedra Grande Hut from Coscomatepec sounds far more interesting than that from Tlachichuca – but how easily can one obtain 4WD transport from Coscomatepec, or buy any last-minute climbing gear/hill-food we might need there?
How much of a nightmare is mountaineering in Mexico with virtually no Spanish language skills? We don’t plan to camp (apart from bringing basic bivvy gear) nor do we need guides on the hill, so will we find it a challenge to negotiate accommodation or hire transport?
We’d thought of finding a hotel somewhere like Puebla to make as a base to leave extra gear for a few days whilst travelling out to the various volcanoes. (rather than MC) Does this sound like a good plan? Alternative suggestions most welcome!
What recommendations would fellow SP readers make for biking and hiking activities in Copper Canyon area? Are mosquitos a problem? What is the best way to get from MC to Copper Canyon/Creel, or where would be the best place to base ourselves to hire bikes for exploring?

were you one of the Poms who circled the crater on Orizaba a couple of weeks ago?
