Your private day trip begins with hotel pickup from your centrally located hotel in Mexico City. From there, you'll drive to the town of Cuernavaca, also known as the "city of eternal spring." This place is considered to have wonderful weather with ideal temperatures most of the year. You'll visit Palacio de Cortes, which was a Spanish residence overlooking the highlands and valleys that extend to the south. The Palacio is considered the oldest colonial civil construction in the Americas. After seeing the streets and major places in Cuernavaca, you'll head to Xochicalco in the state of Morelos. El Borda Garden is a historical museum located in the city of Cuernavaca and is located in what was the summer mansion of the wealthy Taxco miner José de la Borda.

Xochicalco is the largest archaeological site and the fifth nationwide. Its name comes from Nahuatl. The site was declared Cultural Heritage of the Nation and on December 1, 1999 UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. Learn from your guide about its importance and its inhabitants. It is said that the ruins possibly corresponded to the civilization of the Olmecs who landed on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico more than fifteen centuries ago. See the main square, which is the most important space, as well as take in the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, the Temple of Stelae and the Observatory.

After touring the sites, you'll drive back to Mexico City and be dropped-off at your hotel. During the tour you will have time to break for lunch (not included).
