It is no longer an anachronism to think that “overseas travel means a tour to a famous city or tourist spot” or “overseas mountaineering is something special”.Knowing the land cannot be done without knowing nature.

Mesoamerican civilization in Mexico also flourished through the coexistence of humans and nature.Among them, of course, Mexico's famous peaks existed as objects of people's faith.

We will guide you from the cultural point of view, not just climbing the many famous mountains of Mexico.

Mexican mountains, caveats and features of our service

Citraltepetl, Mexico's highest mountain
(Pico de Orizaba)

mountains of mexico

Mexico has a volcanic belt called the Transpacific Volcanic Belt, which runs east to west around 19 degrees north latitude in central Mexico.At the eastern end is Citlaltépetl, commonly known as Pico de Orizaba, Mexico's highest peak at 5,636m, next to it is Tliltépetl, commonly known as Sierra Negra. 4,540m, to the north is Nauhcampatépetl (commonly known as Cofre de Perote) 4,282m, and to the west is Mexico's sixth peak, Matlalcueye (commonly known as La La).・La Malinche (4,461m), Mexico's third peak, Iztaccíhuatl (5,286m), Mexico's second peak, Popocatépetl (5,465m), Mexico's fourth peak, Xinantécatl (commonly known as Nevado)・Mt. De Toluca At 4,680m, it is one of Mexico's top 300 mountains within a XNUMXkm radius from the capital, Mexico City.

The closest mountain to Mexico City is Mount Ajusco, at 3,929m, with a panoramic view of the Mexican Basin.Most of them are concentrated east of Mexico City, and the highest in the west is Zapotépetl, commonly known as Nevado de Colima (4,330m). (The altitude varies depending on the reference material, but this site refers to the data of SGM or INEGI, which are government agencies)

It is not a mountain range like the Japanese Alps, but most of them are independent peaks.
Popocatepetl is the only volcano that is emitting smoke and erupting, and the other volcanoes are dormant.
Therefore, entry into the foot of Mt. Popocatepetl is restricted and cannot be entered.

for safe climbing

Climbing considering physical condition and climbing experience

Regarding climbing conditions in Mexico, first of all, there are no well-maintained mountain huts like in Japan, so basically we climb and descend in one day.There is no restroom after leaving the parking lot.
The climbing routes we guide are relatively easy, but the altitude rises rapidly, which increases the risk of altitude sickness. need to be careful.
We recommend that you bring headache medicine and altitude sickness preventive medicine that you are used to taking.

For a safe climbing experience in Mexico

The mountains in Mexico are different from the mountains in Japan, where mountain huts are maintained and safe.Even if the degree of difficulty is low, we will schedule and guide you with safety priority.
The capital city of Mexico City is 2240m, basically it goes up to about 3000-4000m by car.After arriving in Mexico, we recommend that you spend a few days in or near the capital, and then acclimatize for a day or two on the base.

Iwasaki is a basic life support BLS (bleeding/open fracture and non-open fracture/sprain) that corresponds to the natural environment away from urban areas, which is included in the natural guide license NOM-09-TUR-2002 certified by the Ministry of Tourism of Mexico.

Mr. Yasuda: "Even from Japan, it's well worth the time it takes!"

Mr. Yasuda
Travel duration: XNUMX days
Destination: Huamantla ⇒ La Malinche ⇒ Iztaccihuatl
I was guided for two days on September XNUMXth and XNUMXth, XNUMX. On the XNUMXth, to the summit of Mt. Malinche. On the XNUMXth, until the XNUMXnd station of Istashiwatar.
I found the website of Mexico Private Tourism Support while searching for "mountain climbing in Mexico" on the net.I was interested in climbing Mt. Malinche, so when I contacted them, they immediately sent me a reply, and after that, they kindly explained the schedule and course.
On the afternoon of the XNUMXth, they picked us up at the hotel we were staying at and stayed overnight in a town near Malinche Peak.The next morning, we left the hotel at XNUMX:XNUMX and went to Malinche Peak.Start walking towards the summit at an altitude of XNUMXm and reach the summit in XNUMX hours and XNUMX minutes.At the top of the mountain, Ms. Iwasaki treated me to a cup of coffee, which eased my fatigue.He also ate the instant noodles we had brought and was satisfied.When I request a mountaineering tour, I often get a sandwich and fruit for lunch.After that, it took XNUMX hours to go down the mountain, and on this day, I was sent to Mexico City.

The next day we went to Iztasihuatar Peak.Due to time constraints, this day was a round trip to the XNUMXnd station.On the way, I was able to see Popoca de Petl, which raises volcanic smoke, and I walked while looking at various alpine plants.For lunch that day, Mr. Iwasaki guided us to a restaurant where you can eat trout dishes.We ate trout dishes that are rarely found in Mexico.After that, they sent us to the city where we live.

This time, I was able to learn various things from the itinerary of the trip to the recommended course, and it was a really fulfilling trip.We were very grateful that they organized a tour according to our wishes and gave us advice.

We live in Mexico and can go to Mexico City in a few hours, but it's worth the time even from Japan.Mexico is a mountain climbing powerhouse known to those in the know! !There are XNUMXm to XNUMXm class mountains scattered around Mexico City, and the world of mountains that cannot be experienced in Japan is close at hand.
Next time, I would like to go to a higher place in Istashiwatar.At that time, Mr. Iwasaki will be a guide as well as this time.thank you.

travel plan

Surprisingly close to Mexico, easy with direct flights!

All Nippon Airways and Aeromexico have two direct flights from Japan to Mexico every day.It takes about 2 hours from Japan, about the same distance as going to the East Coast of the United States or Europe.

Both flights depart in the afternoon.In the case of All Nippon Airways, the departure time is around 4:2 pm and the arrival in Mexico is around 14:15 pm on the same day.It's a strange feeling, but this is due to the time difference.There is a time difference of XNUMX hours in summer and XNUMX hours in winter between Japan and Mexico.

お帰りの直行便は深夜1時頃の出発で、成田への到着は朝6時半頃です。たとえば、メキシコ出発が4月1日01:00でしたら3月31日の夜に空港に入り、到着は日本時間の4月2日午前6時半です。

Altiplano Central Region

Around 800 BC, the Cuicuilco culture built the first huge religious monuments in the region, then the famous Teotihuacan culture, which later developed into an "international" city, and around 800 after its death, the Messika ( Tula, where the Aztecs also inherited part of their culture, Cantona, another unknown megalopolis that had a hostile relationship with Teotihuacan, and Xochicalco, a representative city of the epiclassic period during the upheaval after the death of Teotihuacan. ), Cacaxtla, and Tepozteco in the south.

Enjoy real Mexican food!

More

Speaking of Mexican food, tacos!Spicy!There are many people who have this image, and I think that there are many people who are not good at "spicy" and shy away from Mexican food.

Mexico is the birthplace of corn, pumpkins, tomatoes, chili, kidney beans, avocados, cocoa, vanilla, and other crops that are indispensable to modern dining tables.These crops spread from here in Mexico to the world.

Mexican food is the home of many crops, and you can feel its history with your own tongue, not to mention its taste.We will guide you to recommended local restaurants.By all means, please enjoy "real Mexican food" at least one.

Examples of sightseeing spots that can be reached in 1-2 days from Mexico City

There are many places around Mexico City, the capital, where you can feel the true face of Mexico.

In addition to the famous tourist spots introduced in guidebooks, we also guide you to places where you can experience "The Mexico".Mexico is five times the size of Japan, and the public transportation system is not very convenient. To be honest, there are hurdles for travelers unfamiliar with Mexico to freely explore Mexico within their limited and valuable time. It is high.

Along with your trip to Mexico's famous peaks, we also introduce you to Mexico's precious cultural heritage.

Oaxaca
You can reach Oaxaca in two days.A tour of the local cuisine of Oaxaca is recommended.
The magnificent cactus valley along the way is a UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Complex, where you can also enjoy the local cuisine.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Oaxaca City Center is located in an area that is home to two of Mesoamerican's three greatest long-lived cultures.The Zapotec and Myztec cultures flourished in this area from more than 1000 BC, and the ruins of Monte Alban and the cave ruins around Mitla are also designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.Interacting with local people, such as cooking and rug making at a local Zapotec home, is an experience unique to this land.This is Iwasaki's recommended sightseeing route where you can experience the history, food, and culture of Oaxaca.
Puebla
Puebla city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.In this town you can meet the local cuisine of Puebla.I will guide you to the recommended gourmet spots that I chose.
Let's go to Cholula as well.We will guide you to the local market (Mercado) and restaurants recommended by Iwasaki.
We can also take you to Quetzalan Village for two days and one night.Drinking coffee while listening to the chirping of birds at a coffee farm surrounded by nature is a special moment.And don't miss the gastronomy of this village.Nearby is the ruins of Yohualichan, the first capital of the Totonaka culture dating back to around 200 AD.
Mexico City
It was once the capital of the Mexica Empire, known to the Aztecs.The historic center of the city and the chinampas of Xochimilco to the south are declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
If you only have a day, you can visit the local restaurants in the city, the market (Mercado), which is the food storehouse of the common people, and if you are interested, the largest central market in Mexico is also interesting.
The strength of Mexico City, the capital, is that even those who say "I don't have time to go to the countryside!" can enjoy delicious regional cuisine.

From Your Mexico Guide To You

Greetings from your guide

Nice to meet you, everyone.

17 years in MexicoThis is Isao Iwasaki from .

I love traveling (poor travel) even in my private life, and I have driven almost all of the important points in the southern half of Mexico (south of the latitude where Zacatecas is located), the Baja California Peninsula, and some northern parts.I like it because when I go by car, I have the freedom to see the scenery along the way, stop and eat if there's something that looks good, and stay overnight wherever I like. As of 2019, I love driving so much that I have driven 10 times around the world (more than 40 km) in Mexico. (Continuing lifelong accident-free record)

My hobby is dancing (cumbia and salsa).She started doing it because she was a bad lover, but she loves it anyway, and no matter how bad things are, whether she's tired or sad, if she makes a fuss with her friends over tequila and salsa, everything will be blown away. (laughs) I got married in 2018, and dancing was also the reason I met my Mexican wife.In the car, there is always lively music such as salsa and cumbia, so even her wife is amazed.

I came to like Japanese sake after coming to Mexico.I also have a license as a sake taster, and I also like explaining Japanese sake to people in Mexico, including tequila.

Living as a Japanese (foreigner) in Mexican society amidst the values ​​of the Mexican people, traveling over 40 kilometers in Mexico, and being able to say, "This is Mexico!" I fell in love with the simplicity of Mexico that makes people happy and energetic.I believe that this is the true face of Mexico, and I started this business with the hope that even for a short time, everyone in Japan would be able to touch it with their five senses.I would like many people to feel that "I am a different person before I know Mexico" than I am after I know Mexico.

Zakkuri and this kind of person

Personality/Personality:Gentle, usually quiet but passionate about what he likes, sore loser, caring, poor talker but talkative, simple way of thinking, super open

Nickname:Human GPS (I drive all over Mexico, so if I look at the map before I leave, I can get almost anywhere without a navigation system = in a way a special skill), Human Cyborg (My wife and former boss say I don't get tired no matter how much I go)

好 き な も の :nature, culture and people

Books that impressed me:Naomi Uemura's "Betting Your Youth on the Mountains"

Motto:Vivir mi vida, tomorrow the wind may not blow, lifelong active

Favorite music:Salsa, cumbia, bachata, reggaeton, ranchera (mariachi), some rock

Favorite food:Sushi, sashimi, ramen, curry, posole, mole, trout dishes, cheese

Favorite alcohol:beer, mezcal (tequila), sake

thing of interest:Honesty, dancing, eating & drinking, driving, traveling with family, photography, running, climbing, guide to Mexico

Dislikes:Tatemae, group life and collective action, speculation, staying still

This is not possible:ヘ ビ

Countries visited so far:Mexico, Cuba, USA, Canada, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia

Places I want to go/things I want to do before I die:Hiking the Himalayas (even if you don't climb mountains), seeing the northern lights, traveling to the Middle East (hope it's safe), dancing with my daughter if we have one.
