Cuernavaca: "The city of eternal spring"

For our 2024 season we are delighted to announce that we will be running our courses in the beautiful city of Cuernavaca, located just one hour south of Mexico City.

Cuernavaca is known in Mexico as “The City of Eternal Spring” due to its idyllic year-round weather conditions. Daytime temperatures range from 71 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit (22 to 25 degrees Celsius) in January to 79 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit (26 to 30 degrees Celsius) in May.

For this reason many Mexico City residents choose to spend their weekends in Cuernavaca, to escape the the chaos, smog and traffic of the capital and enjoy Cuernavaca’s fine colonial architecture, its vibrant bar & restaurant scene, its history, nightlife and – of course – its warm weather and sunshine!

Why Cuernavaca?

Culture – check.

Food – check.

Weather – check.

Nightlife – check.

Residents of Cuernavaca, or “Guayabos” as they sometimes refer to themselves as, are extremely proud of their city – and with good reason. Cuernavaca has traditionally gone under the radar compared to other Mexican cities – but not any more. In the last several years Cuernavaca (and indeed Mexico itself) has gone from strength to strength and Cuernavaca can now rightly claim its place as one of the true travel-friendly havens of Latin America. Cuernavaca not only has an abundance of museums, galleries, parks, bars and nightclubs, it also has a food scene recognised by UNESCO, vibrant street art, markets and architecture that will form an unforgettable part of your Mexican experience. Located just one hour south of Mexico City, Cuernavaca is also perfectly located for travelling to some of the country’s finest locations.

You can take it from us – we came here from the UK ten years ago and have not found a good reason to leave since. Just like our Cuernavaca neighbours who welcomed us with open arms when we first arrived in the city back in 2014, we would like to offer the same hospitality to you. Come and find out what it means to live in this spectacular city, and not just as a tourist – experience it like a real “Guayabo”!

Cuernavaca and the surrounding areas




Natural Beauty 

The diversity and variety surrounding Cuernavava really is incredible.  While here, you can appreciate some of Mexico’s most rugged and breathtaking natural scenery such as the Popocatépetl Volcano, the spectacular “Magic Towns” of Tepoztlán and Taxco, the majestic waterfalls of  Mil Cascadas and Pozas Azules and the humid jungles of the Sierra de Huahutla.  And if you are a nature lover, México really is a special place to be: how many other countries can boast over 1000 species of bird, 800 species of reptiles, 500 species of mammals and over 100 endemic species that live here and nowhere else on the planet?



Culture and Anthropology

Mexico is famous for its Mayas and Aztecs but there were actually at least five major civilisations here before the Spanish arrived:  the Olmec, Maya, Aztecs, Teotihuacan and Toltecs. These civilisations were some of the most technologically and culturally advanced societies in the ancient world and left behind the breathtaking network of pyramids, temples, artworks and carvings that can still be seen today. Nowadays there are 68 recognised national languages in Mexico with over 350 separate dialects, and thousands of folk traditions and customs, making Mexico one of the most culturally rich countries on earth. 


Beyond just looking at the beauty of Mexico, you can experience it! Mexico has no shortage of adventure activities that are sure to get your adrenaline pumping. In many locations you can find zip lining, waterfall jumping, cave diving, horseback riding, 4×4 tours, bungee jumping, wild swimming, kayaking, and much, much more! 

Morelos, the state of which Cuernavaca is the capital, is well known for being a hub for adventure tourism and you will notice that many Mexico City residents come to Cuernavaca and the surrounding areas for weekends and holidays to enjoy the weather and take part in the diverse activities that the region has to offer.


It is no secret that Mexico has some of the best food on the planet – is is so good, in fact, that in 2010 UNESCO awarded it the status of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. But don’t just take their word for it – to know what Mexican food is all about you have to come and taste it for yourself…
