Cerro El Brujo, or The Sorcerer, is a majestic volcanic dome near the town of Santa Maria Coatepec in the state of Puebla, Mexico.
El Brujo is a beautiful asymmetrical cinder cone with its craters and summit at 2,930 m.a.s.l., at its southern tip. Ascending from this side is quite easy, allowing an elevation gain of over 400 meters within 1 hour of hiking. But there are other areas we can climb it from, like its northern slopes, which provide a gentle ascent too. And it is the perfect training for the nearby peaks like Pico de Orizaba, Nevado de Colima or Iztaccihuatl.
Due to its unique terrain known as malpais or badland, which consists in debris flows, lava and even recent ash, it is not suitable for agriculture. However, this has allowed it to maintain its original ecosystem of grassland, as well as pine and oak woods.
Reaching this marvellous place is easy. From Mexico City or the city of Puebla you can head to San Salvador el Seco and then Santa María Coatepec. Then, once we arrive to El Brujo the route we’ll follow is pretty straight forward. And when we reach its upper parts, we’ll find multiple ways to its summit.
Finally, at the top of El Brujo, we’ll encounter a chapel dedicated to the Virgin of Guadalupe, along with a Mexican flag. The views we will get from here are simply breathtaking and will make all our effort worth it.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
