Take Route 160 from Cuernavaca via Yautepec to the semi-tropical town of Cuautla, meaning ‘where trees abound’. This crowded weekend resort for the capital is a popular sulphur spring, known as aguas hediondas or stinking waters. The tourists’ Cuautla is divided from the locals’ Cuautla by a wide river and the locals have the best deal; it is worth crossing the stream. The plaza is pleasant, traffic free and well maintained. There is a market in the streets around 5 de Mayo. The tourist office (Av Obregón) is opposite Hotel Cuautla. The Casa de la Cultura (3 blocks north of the Zócalo) has information and maps. There is a museum and ex-convent next door.
