Ex Convento Santo Domingo de Guzman

Reviewed By CeliaCerati19 - Mexico City, Mexico

We attended a wedding held at this convent and it was very, very beautiful. The former Convent was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in the 90´s and it´s one of the best kept Convents from the area. The mural paintings are very beautiful. One of the chapels hosts a small museum and there are informative panflets available.
Regarding the shoes, please be advised that cobblestones are everywhere: the stairs, the entrance, the side entrance, all access is cobblestones. The cloister is safe for your ankles, but getting there will be tricky.

Convento de San Juan Bautista

Reviewed By axs666 - Canberra, Australia

This ex-monastery is huge and dominates the zocalo area of Tlayacapan. This site is part of the "Monasteries on the Slopes of Popocatépetl" World Heritage Site. The grounds themselves are modest now. You can visit the church part which is still used for local worship. There is also a museum located in the monastery building attached to the church, which I unfortunately did not have time to visit. An impressive glimpse into the power of the Augustinians in the 1500s.

Tepozteco

Reviewed By Vincent_van_Halsema

This is really a lovely hike. It is quite easy to get to the top using the normal route, but there are dozens of other trails, some of which hidden, once you get there to go behind the temple and up other Mountains. There will be no signs and few people so it might be easy to get a bit lost. Id recommend downloading the area on google maps on your phone so you can track your location. Keep in mind that the area suffered a big earthquake in August and September, so don't try to climb through narrow Canyons or anything like that. It is a bit

Agua Hedionda

Reviewed By Tony G - San Antonio, Texas

Agua Hedionda is for people that enjoy therapeutic waters. There is an opening from which the water comes into the large pool area which makes your skin tingle. Your hair ends up feeling squeaky clean after you finish swimming. Agua Hedionda is an older facility so don't expect to have brand new amenities. People come here for the waters and the family atmosphere. Weekdays are much less crowded. If you don't like crowds avoid three day holidays.

Zona Arqueologica de Yautepec

Reviewed By axs666 - Canberra, Australia

Located in Yautepec de Zaragoza between Cuernavaca and Cuautla, it's on Paseo Tlahuica after you take that road off the highway. It's a smaller site with a few small pyramids and some outbuildings that were part of a palace complex. Well maintained, it even has bathrooms, it's a nice little site if you are into pyramids.

Balnearo Ejidal El Bosque

Reviewed By MASANTOSL - Mexico City, Mexico

No recuerdo cuantas veces hemos acudido al Balneario. Siempre es una buena experiencia. Hay lugar para todos, el rio, pozas y cascadas son muy bellas. Aun cuando el agua es fria, con un chapuzon basta. Ademas se puede acampar o bien solo ir de salida por entrada.
Lo unico malo son los toboganes, casi nunca funcionan o tienes que subir tu cubeta de agua.
