A mystic place of Mexican supersticions you won’t believe exists!

There are many reasons why Tepoztlan is a captivating place. It is one of the most prominent places in the state of Morelos. It is also next to my hometown, Cuernavaca.  Firstly, one must consider its location at the foot of impressive mountains, shining like the sun. With almost no network signal, you are in for a real immersion trip into Mexican culture.

Before we start, here are some tips that might help you get the most out of Tepoztlan:

  • Bring comfortable shoes: The streets are for walking only, and cars are banned in many of the streets in the downtown area. Also, if you are hiking the hill, better be good shoes!
  • Start with an empty stomach: There’s so much to eat and drink around, that you won’t need any prior snack.
  • Keep an open mind: Everything in Tepoztlan is mysticism and magic. Prepare to take in ancient traditions and strange beliefs!

History & Wealth

tepoztlan

Without a doubt, the main attraction of Tepoztlan, is the Cerro del Tepozteco, a pyramid on top of a hill, which you can hike to the top, and then climb up the monument, the  pre-Hispanic ruins that crown its summit. Otherwise, Tepoztlan, is an inexhaustible wealth of attractions to absorb Mexican culture to the max.

Hill
The myths, art and historical references are related to its people. They say it was in Tepoztlan where the great Quetzalcoatl was born. Considered “The Feathered Serpent”, represents the duality inherent in the human condition.  The “snake” is physical body with its limitations and “feathers” are the spiritual principles.. As a vestige of their noble indigenous past, lay the remains of Xochimilca temple dedicated to the god of pulque, Ometochtli-Tepoztécatl, and that appears at the top of Tepozteco hills.
