The Parque Nacional Cofre de Perote is located in the Mexican state of Vericruz. Perote is about 265km east from Mexico City, and about 130km from Puebla on highway 140 towards Xalapa. The most popular attraction is the summit to El Cofre de Perote or Nauhcampatépet, an extinct volcano. It is an easy and pleasant day-hike that takes you for the bigger part through a pine forest with great views of the surrounding volcanoes on clear days and could make for an easy acclimatization climb for those planning to climb neighboring volcanoes. There are also several sport rock climbing routes on the summit block. If you plan to stay overnight, there are several possible campsites, but there is no water on the mountain. Show more
