Located in the state of Morelos, Cuernavaca, or the “City of Eternal Spring”, has long been a favorite weekend getaway for many of Mexico City’s inhabitants due to its splendid weather and proximity to the nation’s capital. Recently, Cuernavaca has experienced a surge in the Business Tourism Sector, becoming a spot where many Mexican and international companies hold off-site meetings, team building exercises and medium sized conferences. Both relaxing and culturally engaging the city contains vestiges of pre-colonial civilizations close to luxury spas and world-class golfing. 

 

Notable things to visit in Cuernavaca include the city center’s two famous plazas, which feature mariachis, excellent dining options and the Cuauhnahuac Museum, a major cultural attraction featuring works from Diego Riviera. The destination also features several nearby eco-tourism options, including visits to a lagoon and forest covered National Park. The nearby archaeological site of Xochicalco is a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing pre-Hispanic ruins. The Tepozteco ruins are also a short drive outside of the city, located atop the scenic mountains that surround the “Pueblo Magico” of Tepoztlan.

 

The city’s extensive meetings tourism infrastructure includes a convention center, a diverse arrangement of unique event venues, 61 meeting hotels and 2,009 rooms and suites. The WTC Morelos Convention Center has 63,000 square feet of events space, divisible into 12 separate sections that can be used for meetings, conventions, expositions, conferences, trade shows and seminars. The venue’s biggest space can host up to 2,142 people auditorium style, and up to 3,000 guests in a banquet.

 

The Holliday Inn Cuernavaca is also an ideal environment in which to hold meetings and corporate events. The hotel’s charming gardens, well-equipped business center, restaurant, pool and bars are a great compliment to its meeting facilities, which include around 38,000 square feet of event space with room for up to 1,720 participants.

 

The city’s airport, the General Mariano Matamoros Airport (CVJ), has national flights to and from Tijuana and Oaxaca. One and a half hours from the destination however, the Mexico City International Airport services 85 destinations in 17 countries. Bus companies servicing Cuernavaca from Mexico City (such as Pullman de Morelos and Estrella Roja) leave frequently from the southern bus station Taxqueña, as well as from the airport.
