Morelos, Mexico

Tourism Information

Located in the southern portion of Mexico’s central region in a zone with a warm tropical climate. Morelos has valley regions, lakes that supply the state with water, and mountain chains covered with forests.

In this fertile territory you can discover the beauty of protected areas like Lagunas de Zempoala National Park, which has seven lagoons that are fed by underground rivers in which you can go diving. Here you can also do ecotourism outings and mountain bike riding in the coniferous forests. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, you can do a rafting trip on the Amacuzac River, especially during the rainy season when the rapids are more challenging.

To get away from it all for a relaxing vacation, Cuernavaca, the state capital, offers excellent hotels, rivers and swimming holes near the Ex-Hacienda de Temixco and the Ex-Hacienda de Las Estacas. Also in Cuernavaca, known as the City of Eternal Spring, you can go golfing or hit the spa resorts for a massage and other therapeutic treatments. After the relaxing experience at the spa, check out Cuernavaca’s magnificent gardens, museums, churches and colonial structures. The city also has various bars where you can enjoy a bohemian atmosphere. If you’d like to learn more about the state’s history and culture, visit the Xochicalco archaeological site, declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, and the ruins of Tepozteco, in Tepoztlan. There you can go to a spa and then visit the markets, where they sell esoteric souvenirs and various crafts.
