Luxury holidays in Cuernavaca

A long-standing favourite with international high-flyers, Cuernavaca has plenty of history as a go-to Mexican getaway. City slickers have been escaping to the verdant Morelos mountains since the 7th century – you can check out the remnants of their ancient country pads at the archaeological sites of Teopanzolco and Xochicalco. The winding city streets are filled with covetable cultural treasures: not to be missed are Diego Rivera’s murals in the Palace of Cortés and the Robert Brady Museum’s collection of curiosities.
