Visit Xochitepec, Morelos

A unique alternative destination, very close to Cuernavaca, Mexico City and the big cities yet with a strategic location to enjoy a relaxing getaway away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Xochitepec, municipality of the state of Morelos, possesses a very particular old Mexico atmosphere with the advantages of a modern tourist infrastructure. Abundant vegetation and thermal waters that are already a signature element of Morelos have helped Xochitepec to become, little by little, into a favorite weekend destination for locals and tourists alike.

Its name comes from two nahuatl words: “Xochitl” which means flower and “tepeti” which means hill. Its buildings and constructions, like the actual Municipal Palace, boast a beautiful colonial style that represents a great tourist attraction by itself.
