September 26 | MEXICO CITY - TEPOZTLAN. Culinary experience.
Many say that its long walls are nothing but temptation... and it’s true. That’s why the pilgrimage begins from the moment in which you step foot on Calle Tepozteco facing the mountains; it ends at the top of the Tepozteco pyramid. This pre-Hispanic construction was built between 1150 and 1350 A.D. in honor of Ometochtli Tepuztecatl, god of pulque (an alcoholic drink made from agave sap), also having to do with fertility and good harvests.

This beautiful town is embedded in a region sheltered by rolling hills and mountains, but its historical past is also a major draw for tourists and visitors. Due to the intense exploitation of its silver deposits, Taxco became one of the most important mining areas in the empire of New Spain. The Grutas of Cacahuamilpa are a treasure lies under the earth: the marvelous natural formations of the region’s rocks and caves. These majestic caves are found in the mountain range of the Sierra Madre Sur and overlap the States of both Guerrero and Morelos. More than 90 “rooms” are open to the public, and it takes roughly 2 hours to cover all of them. The 2-kilometer walk is taxing but immensely satisfying as you stroll through these remnants of ancient imagination

Valle de Bravo is only 145 kilometers from Mexico City. Its cool weather makes it a delight to walk around: you’ll find shade among white stucco houses decked out in sienna wainscoting, with wrought iron balconies, elegant porches and tile roofs. This designated Magic Town has everything the demanding tourist could hope for, with hotels, restaurants and golf courses that offer relaxation and allow you to really make the most of your stay.
