Magno Travel Insights for the State of Morelos
Traveling in Mexico and in the State of Morelos with the Insights of Franco Magno
The eternal springtime state of Morelos. Hi! Magno readers. The Magno Insights are some of the learnings I’ve come to after 25 years of traveling experience in Mexico. By taking advantage of these inputs, you’ll go a little beyond on your trips in Mexico.
Please take advantage of these recommendations that I consider useful for any kind of visitor.
So, some recommendations for the state of Morelos are:
* Dress appropriately. And I’m not talking about dressing up for a party. Morelos is a state with an average annual temperature of 22°C (71°F).
I recommend wearing, especially in the spring, summer, and autumn, light clothing made of natural fabrics and warm colors that will allow you to enjoy your walks more comfortably. Here in Morelos, you’ll sweat a little.
Now, if you want to visit the Morelos state, my partners of jetradar.com can offer you the best airfares here; or if you’d like to get another opinion, my partners of chepoair.com have great rates here. Thank you very much for supporting me.
* Bring with you insect repellent, especially if you visit the “Lago de Tequesquitengo” region where some mosquitoes and associate insects are ready to attack some unsuspecting people.
Morelos is the “host of the world” state, and unfortunately, these flying buzzers enter the reception without previous bookings.
* However, not everything is climate challenge since one of Mexico’s best climate states is precisely Morelos, home of the city of “Eternal Spring,” that is, “Cuernavaca capital city.”
* In Cuernavaca, I recommend taking a walk on the “Cuernabus.”
A sightseeing tourist bus that visits the essential and core points of interest of the “Morelense” capital city in approximately an hour and a half.
You can go aboard in the “Plaza de Armas” in Cuernavaca’s Historic Center.
* Morelos is a perfect destination for recovering your health.
This way, I recommend spending at least one day of your trip to enjoy the very varied health options that the “Chinelos” land, those colorful and typical “Morelenses” traditional dancers, offer to people seeking health spaces.
From Cuernavaca, passing through “Tepoztlán,” “Oaxtepec,” “Tequesquitengo,” “Cocoyoc,” and “Cuautla,” among several others, Morelos offers a spa treatments menu for any liking.
* Enjoy spas and water parks.
I also advise you to spend at least one more day to enter the “Morelo’s” world of spas and the charm of water. The climate favors that experience, along with the water, be unique and refreshing.
If you doubt about these health paradises, you have more than excellent options in the “Las Estacas” water park and spa located in the “Yautepec’s” municipality. This nature backwater houses a water spring.
Morelos is great, isn’t it? Let me suggest you rent a car to drive in Morelos.
Why? Because it’s very convenient and taking advantage of the affordable rates that my partners of Discover Cars offer you here or Economy Bookings that you can get here, driving in Morelos will be trouble-free. Thank you very much for supporting me.
* The spa group offer that I recommend not missing continues with the “Ex-Hacienda de Temixco.”
Located in what was a former “Hacienda” that produced sugar and other crops. It’s a more than a perfect setting to relax in an exceptional place.
Some other options? No problem.
Scattered throughout the Morelos state territory, you find them from “Xochitepec” town to capital’s Cuernavaca city southern region.
You can also find them in the city of “Cuautla,” and in the “Tlalquitenango,” “Tequesquitengo,” “Puente de Ixtla,” and “Jojutla” villages.
For fun water parks, the “Hurricane Harbor” in Oaxtepec and the “Rollo” in Tlalquitenango are epicenters of guaranteed fun.
* For those eager to meet history, Morelos also has luxury dishes.
I advise not to miss a visit to the “Palacio de Cortés” in the Historic Center of Cuernavaca.
This palace was the former residence of the Hernán Cortés Spanish conqueror.
The “Xochicalco” archaeological zone in the municipality of “Miacatlán,” southern Cuernavaca.
Erected in the year 700 AC (700 AD) with its fantastic pyramids decorated with beautiful reliefs, and the “Tepozteco” archaeological zone in the magical village of Tepoztlán.
This last pyramid is located on top of the “Cerro del Tepozteco” (Tepozteco hill).
It offers a permanent tribute to the “Ome Tochtli” (Dos Conejo) (Two Rabbit) god. You’ll see exquisite views of the “Valle Sagrado de Tepoztlán” from the hilltop.
* Eating the specialty that has made Morelos state world famous.
I’m referring to the well-known “Cecina” (Dried and salted beef steak) from the “Yecapixtla” village.
Yecapixtla is a municipality located approximately 60 kilometers (37.28 miles) from Cuernavaca’s city eastern side.
It offers a permanent journey into the world of this typical dish consisting mainly of salty beef steak.
I recommend accompanying it with handmade corn Tortillas.
When you feel like having a dessert, you have in Tepoztlán an excellent desserts’ representative.
I’m talking about the unmissable and yummy fruity ice cream called the “Tepoznieves.”
* Don’t forget to visit the “Gardens of Mexico” (Jardines de México).
Staring at nature revives the soul undoubtedly. It’s a large botanical garden located in the Tequesquitengo town’s vicinity, municipality of Jojutla, southern Morelos. It’s divided into seven themed gardens that show different species of flora.
It offers captivating spaces such as the “Vegetable Labyrinth.” It also has a vegetable-producing greenhouse. I advise you to arrive in the morning to appreciate the different shades that the early morning sunlight prints on the lawn extensions to take those memorable photographs.
Now, what is the result of combining fantastic accommodation options at very affordable prices and awesome tours? Hostelworld and Musement.
* Don’t miss the “Carnavales de Morelos” (Morelos state carnivals).
I definitely recommend these series of traditional festivals because it’s here that Morelos state shows majestic to visitors in its culture, traditions, and gastronomy.
The “Carnavales de Morelos” start from January’s third week, most of the time in the “Jiutepec” town.
They usually end in April’s second week. Most of time, these great celebrations end in the “Anenecuilco” village.
Magic, joy, good vibes, colors everywhere, and a festive enthusiasm captivate anyone’s senses.
Besides, adding to this framework the Morelo’s fantastic climate, the delicacies of its gastronomy, and the “Chinelos” joyous, festive dancer, your visit to this amazing state will round off perfectly.
You just let be caught by this incredible cultural phenomenon of Morelos state. I don’t miss them any year.
