Cuernavaca is a beautiful city just South of Mexico City. It is known as "the city of eternal spring" because of its consistent 27°C (80°F) weather year round.

It’s climate is much better than the Capital and it has become the home of many of Mexico’s famous people. It is also a popular retreat for citizens of Mexico City who come to escape the heat and smog of the city. There are also many pre-Hispanic ruins and Pyramids nearby. We will explore one of them tomorrow. This is a city that we will definitely return to.

The highlight of our short trip to town today was dinner at the Restaurant Casa Hidalgo. We sat on a private balcony overlooking the Jardine de los Heroes and the Palace of Cortez. We both started off with a nicely mixed margarita, Norma had Medallions of Beef in Pepper Sauce prepared by the "Captain" right at the table and I chose the grilled Sea Bass. This was without a doubt the best meal we have had in Mexico this year. The service was great and the bill was a very reasonable $450 Pesos before the tip.
