Getting There & Away
The best way to get to Nevado de Toluca is with a private guide or tour.
From Toluca, taxis will take you to the trailhead for upwards of M$250, or there and back (including time for a look around) for a negotiable M$600. Be sure to hire a newer taxi (the road up is very rough and dusty) from an official taxi stand with the driver's photo displayed inside the vehicle. Most international car-rental companies also have offices in Toluca.
From the park entrance a road winds 3.5km up to the main gate. From there it’s a 17km drive along an unsurfaced road up to the crater. Dress warmly – it gets chilly up top.
