Introducing Cuernavaca

There’s always been a formidable glamour surrounding Cuernavaca (kwehr-nah-vah-kah), the capital of Morelos state. With its vast, gated haciendas and sprawling estates, it has traditionally attracted high-society visitors year-round for its warmth, clean air and attractive architecture.

Today this tradition continues, even though urban sprawl has put a decisive end to the clean air, and you’re more likely to see vacationing North Americans and college students studying Spanish on month-long courses than meet international royalty or great artists in the street.
