Getting there & away
Pullman de Morelos/OCC (395-05-20; www.pullman.com.mx; Av 5 de Mayo 35) runs 1st-class buses to/from Mexico City’s Terminal Sur (M$63, 1½ hours, hourly 5am to 8pm). Frequent buses to Cuautla (M$14, 15 minutes) depart from the Hwy 115D tollbooth just outside town. Pullman de Morelos runs free combis between the Av 5 de Mayo terminal and the gas station near the autopista entrance; from there, walk down the left (exit) ramp to the tollbooth.
Ometochtli direct (M$18, 45 minutes) and ‘ordinario’ (M$12, one hour) buses run to Cuernavaca every 10 minutes, 5am to 9pm. On Monday to Friday mornings, you can catch the bus downtown.
If driving north from Cuernavaca on Hwy 95D, don’t get off at the Tepoztlán exit, which will dump you on the slow federal highway. Instead, take the subsequent Cuautla/Oaxtepec exit and follow the signs.
