The Popocatepetl is more than an attraction to admire from a distance; Don Goyo is a legendary guardian that protects and gives meaning to those who admire it.

This imposing and majestic volcano crowned with snow occasionally blows puffs of smoke to remind the world that its spirit still endures. 

It will take you less than an hour’s drive to arrive to Santiago Xalitzintla, the nearest town to the summit, which is only twelve kilometers from the crater. Enjoy the tranquil yet restless atmosphere that the whole village breathes.
