Cuernavaca is situated at only 89 kilometers from Mexico City and for that reason, it´s a popular getaway from Mexico City. The city is part of a tropical region, however, its temperature is fairly constant, around 25 degrees celsius. Most people call Cuernavaca“The City of the Eternal Spring”. It owed this nickname to the Prussian geographer and naturalist Alexander Von Humboldt who visited Cuernavaca in the early 19th century on his Latin-American expedition.
Moreover, Cuernavaca is a perfect place to relax and explore numerous historic monuments. So, admire the most representative building of Cuernavaca, which is, without doubt, the Palace of Hernan Cortes. You will find in next to the main square and the crafts market. Hernan Cortes built the palace, which was finished in 1535. It is one of the oldest European-style, civil constructions in the Americas. Just outside the building, you can see the remains of the old pyramid on which Cortes built his palace. After an extensive restoration, the building now houses the interesting Museo Regional Cuauhnáhuac that deals with the history and anthropology of Morelos State. In addition, visit the Cathedral from the 16th century and have a walk around the Morelos and Juarez Gardens. The State Government Palace connects these and thus form together the town´s central square.
Afterwards, we will go to Taxco, also called the silver capital. Here, we will visit the charming centre of Taxco with its pleasant atmosphere, paved streets, and Baroque architecture. Visit a silver workshop and the Santa Prisca Church, considered one of the most beautiful churches in the country. At the end of our trip, before going back to Mexico City, you will have some free time for some shopping or take photos.
