Hola, I am interested in taking your overnight camping tour or day tour of Iztaccihuatl. From what I read, the best time ov year goes through May, but I am wondering if sometime during the first two weeks of June is still possible? Do you recommend this time, or is there are likelihood of bad weather or trip cancellations? I have not yet booked my flights, and would consider end of May also, but beginning of June is preferred. However this would be a highlight of my trip, so I want to ensure this tour would work out well first.
Thank you for your guidance!

If you are comfy travelling during the said period and if that tour is available, then please check out the tour here: Iztaccihuatl tours
