The plan is to fly into Mexico City and climb volcanoes for 10-12days. Pico De Orizaba is the goal but want to bag other volcanoes to acclimatize to the altitude beforehand (La Malinche and Iztaccihuatl). If there is time I would also like to visit the Teotihuacan pyramids in Mexico City. Right now I'm going solo, but if anybody would like to join me for all or even part of the trip PM me

Yes as much as I love being up in the mountains I would like to get some culture out of the trip aswell...any opinions on renting a car?
I know people don't recommend it, but I also want to be able to get from place to place as easy as possible and not worry about taxis and buses to find. If I was to Climb La Malinche first I would have to get a bus from Mexico city to the local town then taxi to the trailhead (including getting a taxi pickup the next day or evening) then all the way back to Mexico city...then bus to Iztaccihuatl, taxi to trailhead (and arrange pickup next day) then bus back to mexico city and all the way to pico de orizaba. Just sounds like to much travel time and no fun...where I could get directly to where I want to be by car and I do have a good gps...

I just got back from our little Mexico volcano trip (Nov 6-14) and everything went very smoothly and we tagged all 3 volcanoes as we had planned. We used OMG (Orizaba Mountain Guides) to drive us around and work out any permit/reservation/hut/hostel issues. El Oso and Maribel took really good care of us and we felt very safe on the whole trip. No water, GI issues or kidnapping/murder attempts to report……
I’m still adding captions, but here’s some photos for the time being
