Welcome to Morelos
The state of Morelos is located south of Mexico City and offers a pleasant climate all year round, beautiful landscapes and a memorable historical journey. Cuernavaca is the main city and capital of the state, also nicknamed “The City of Eternal Spring“.
It is a region with a rich historical tradition dating to the time when the Colony was a place of rest for governors. The pre-Hispanic towns had settlements in this place and they emphasize Xochicalco and Coatetelco. This is perfect place to spend a weekend and rest, besides visiting small towns and even worth a visit to the lake of Tequesquitengo.
