If you are not a person in good physical condition, take it easy. Wear suitable shoes for slippery and rocky surfaces. The visit will be much more pleasant if you do not go on a weekend, which is really crowded. When you get to the...More

This is a beautiful, if strenuous hike. The story of the leader who was a legend in his own right and then converted to Christianity is endearing. The temple is lovely, but the highlight is the trip up (very up) the canyon to the top...More

The 2km hike isn’t easy. Most people walk as far as they can and then rest and repeat (and there is a lot of repeating). The view is worth the journey so if you are in Cuernavaca then take the extra 40 minute trip to...More

You might find a private guide in Cuernavaca, at any Spanish language school, there is no special tour for the area. Actually, it is not worth it, this attraction has more of a physical element and the enjoyment of nature... More

At the base of the trail up to the pyramid there was a restaurant which looked like it had lovely views. If I'd had more time before catching my bus back to Mexico City I would have tried there.
