The guides on Malinche and Orizaba were very good. But there was a big problem on Iztaccihuatl. I said to each of the guides that I had there that I wasn't bothered about seeing the sunrise from the top, and would it be possible to start a bit later than the usual 1am? They both agreed that it was, one saying that the reason for leaving so early was that normally they needed to take clients back to Mexico City after the climb, and in my case that wasn't necessary as I would stay at the visitor's centre. So in the end we left the visitor's centre at 4:30am. When we got to a foresummit of Iztaccihuatl at 11am, my guide said that we had left very late, and would have to turn back. So we never reached the top, to my great annoyance. In retrospect the best option would have been to have spent one night at the refuge at 4700m before going to the top, but this was never really offered as a possibility.
I love Carlos and the team! We ended up changing our itinerary to 3 mountains in 8 days and had a great experience. I will recommend Carlos and his wonderful hospitality and working with logistics anytime!
It was a really unforgettable experience! Personal thanks to our guide, Raul, for interesting stories, tasty food in the shelter and support! But you need to be sure that you are in a good physical condition. Unfortunately due to circumstances we did not make it to the peak of Orizaba and reached only the glacier, but such length was perfect for acclimatization as we nearly did not feel mountain sickness. Also guys from the agency forgot to put the sleeping bags as we discussed, but Raul solved this problem at the mountain by giving his own sleeping bag to my wife and organizing two more bags delivery from the campus next day.
Bernardo was so nice and made sure that we were all safe and sound at all time. The taco place we went afterwards were so good. I had a wonderful trip that day and will definitely recommend it to everyone! Thank you!
The guides were awesome and supportive. I will absoutely be using explore share in the future
