Cuernavaca, the capital city of the Mexican state Morelos, has been a summer escape since Aztec times. Its warm and stable climate makes it choice for weekend or summer homes, and both Mexicans and foreigners have taken notice. “The city of eternal spring” has also become a destination for students world wide who wish to study Spanish, and the English abilities of the local reflect this high rate of interaction. Due to the warm, humid climate, many of Cuernavaca’s top destinations are outdoors. Be sure to stroll through any of the many gardens in the city (Morelos and Juarez, Borda, Chapultepec Ecological Park) and explore ancient archeological sites (Xochicalco, Teopanzolco). Also of note are the Palacio de Cortes, the summer residence of Spanish conqueror Hernan Cortes, and the city cathedral. The city has rapidly industrialized, helped in part by its proximity to Mexico City. This industrialization, while benefiting the local economy, has lowered the appeal of the city, as traffic and choking smog is now commonplace. However, better economic opportunities have led to development, and Cuernavaca now has a hopping nightlife and restaurant scene. No matter whether you are looking for a relaxing week in the sun or a wild weekend full of water parks and nightclubs, Cuernavaca is a worthy destination.

    Cuernavaca is known locally as 'La ciudad de la eterna primavera' - the city of the eternal spring. With its lush environment, pleasant climate and friendly locals, Cuernavaca's tagline is well deserved. A Monterrey Tech campus makes this city a popular summer study abroad site with foreigners and Mexicans alike and so there is mucha fiesta tambien, guey!
