  • The day I visited Paso de Cortés was a clear one and the mountains around were covered by snow, so the landscape was amazing.

  • Amazing views of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes and of the Valley of Mexico. You climb to the high pass between the two volcanoes along a twisting highway through a beautiful pine forest.
