A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

Because Cuernavaca has been an upscale city since long before the word “upscale” existed,  you’d expect to have a good choice of fine places to stay. That is indeed the case. Many of the hotels have extensive gardens, one-of-a-kind rooms furnished with antiques, and many more amenities.

Some of the best hotels include: Camino Real Sumiya (formerly the home of the heiress Barbara Hutton), Casa Tamayo, Las Mañanitas (with one of Mexico’s most famous restaurants), and Misión del Sol (an upscale health retreat with solar power).

Other very attractive hotels in Cuernavaca include: Casa Colonial (in a converted 18th-century building), Cuernavaca Racquet Club, El Nido, Hacienda Cocoyoc, Hacienda de Cortés ( a restored 16th-century hacienda actually built for Hernán Cortés), Hacienda Vista Hermosa (a 17th century hacienda), Hostería Las Quintas Resort & Spa, Jacarandas Las Villas de Bellavista, María Cristina, Maximiliano y Carlota, Rancho Cuernavaca (with an eight-acre estate and its own waterfall), Villa Bejar, Villa Bejar Beach Club & Spa, and Villa del Conquistador (with a panoramic view of the city).

Cuernavaca might be a good place to splurge and stay in a nice place. Budget hotels exist as well, though this city isn’t a bargain-hound’s paradise.

As well as the usual seasonal popularity of hotels in Mexico, since people leave Mexico City for a nice break, the weekends tend to be quite busy for Cuernavaca hotels.
