Set in the center of the country and surrounded by complex mountain ranges, lies the state of Morelos, which enjoys one of the mildest climates in the country. It borders on the Federal District and the states of Mexico, Puebla and Guerrero.
Despite its small size, it boasts numerous attractions. This territory was dominated by the Chichimecs, but it was also inhabited by the Xochimilca and subsequently the Tlahuica. It was precisely the latter that founded Cuauhnáhuac, which the Spaniards converted into Cuernavaca, now famous as “the city of eternal spring,” that Hernán Cortés chose as the site for building his large realm. Its climate meant that several sugar cane haciendas were built there, while the Jesuits erected churches and monasteries that can still be admired to this day. This state was the site of major historical events during the period of independence and the revolution. Today it houses numerous spas and recreational centers.
