Things to do

16,000 Feet to the Orizaba Peak in Veracruz

Mount Orizaba is for climbers who take it to the very top. With an expert indigenous guide (you’ll need him), you ascend 16,000 ft to the top of Mexico’s highest peak and—after Kilimanjaro—the second most prominent volcano in the world. In the territory below, you kayak rapids or even take the falls at Tomata. Mount Orizaba is for climbers who take it to the very top.
