Reviews of Tepoztlán

Rest and heat, an hour and a half from the capital.

My suggestion:
Take some fruit (apples or bananas) to feed the badgers who live at the foot of El Tepozteco pyramid.
My review
Tepotzlán is a small, tranquil town, in the south of Mexico. It's hot, the streets are calm and the inhabitants don't have a western style of life. Tepoztlán is an ideal place to stay for everyone who wants to get out of the exhausting pace of Mexico DF ( Distrito Federal ).

A wonderful mountain village in Morelos state where chilangos (people who live in Mexico City) love to go to try the famous quesadillas azules at the Sunday market.

My suggestion:
If you are a nature lover then head about 10 kilometres away to Amatlan. There are some wonderful walks there, as well as some atypical places to stay, such as in a wigwam!
My review
It was taken over by hippies in the 70s and so the main streets of the village look a bit like a supermarket of alternative medicines. On Sunday the town is heaving as a lot of visitors come from the capital to visit the local handicraft market.
