    Waterfall in Salto

    by kcrismier Updated Oct 11, 2003

    Nice little 100+ feet waterfall. There is a pathway above the waterfall, but unfortunately, it has been closed off to foot traffic because it is now considered dangerous. But you can still see it from the other pathways.

    Salto de San Anton

    by kcrismier Updated Oct 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of many parks and gardens in Cuernavaca. I especially enjoyed this one because of the basalt rock face. Basalt forms itself into hexagonal columns when lava flows and cools in a certain way. You can see this type of rock formation in several places around the world (including N. Ireland and and E. Washington State), but these were the first that I have seen that were jutting out of a cliff. Pretty neat looking.

    Nice pathways and stairs to climb. Nice jungle atmosphere in the middle of a bustling city. About a 20 minute walk from the zocalo.

    Brady Museum- eclectic and fascinating

    by ricknkat Updated Apr 9, 2003

    You'll hear all about the Brady museum in every tourist brochure or website on Cuernavaca, but it really does live up to the hype. The museum is a converted convent which was bought by the American artist and collector Robert Brady (a true world traveller- he's actually kind of my hero now that I've seen all the amazing places he saw) in the 1962. He lived there with his two weiner dogs and his entire house complex is one huge museum of artwork and native masks and artifacts from just about every corner of the world. It's also a really beautiful courtyard home architecturally. He is buried right next to his two pet dachsunds in the lawn in the central courtyard.

    Best Spanish School in Mexico

    by ricknkat Updated Apr 2, 2003

    The Universidad Internacional in Cuernavaca was definitely the best value and best learning experience I could imagine. I would recommend it to absolutely anybody. Not only do you learn tons of Espanol in a beautiful and fun environment, but you will no doubt make many new friends, and if you wnat to, you can also choose to stay with a super nice Mexican family like we did (so you get Spanish 24 hours a day, which is great practice!)

    Great Friends we made at the school

    The Cathedral

    by chris_i79 Written Mar 19, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Cathedral can be seen from many locations in the city. It is quite big and has many garden and statues in the courtyard for you to marvel at. Inside, as with all churches I saw in Mexico, it is decorated beautifully.
    You can climb up to the roof and the bell tower for a small fee (couple of Peso´s forget exactly how much) each day.

    The palace of the famed Spanish explorer Cortes now houses the Cuauhnauhuac Museum.

    Don't miss the Diego Rivera mural depiciting the brutal conquest of Mexico by the Spanish.
