Tepoztlan, located in the state of Morelos, is an excellent destination to relax and to absorb the country’s culture. Tepoztlan is famous for its gourmet ice cream called Tepoznieves.


One of the primary attractions is a fun (but long) hiking trail to the Tepozteco Pyramid on the mountain. Plan on at least an hour going up and a half hour coming down – double that if you are a slow hiker. The hiking trail is somewhat dangerous, and there is a very tricky and hazardous obstacle at the end.

Tepoztlan also has a sizable marketplace to buy souvenirs and to enjoy some very authentic Mexican food.
