Cultural Adventure in Tepoztlán

1 of 7

An hour due south of Mexico City in the shadow of the Tepozteco National Park, the tiny village of Tepoztlan offers everything from artisanal shopping to cooking classes.

Parque Nacional El Tepozteco: Hike to the Tepozteco Pyramid about two kilometers straight up for a small Aztec relic and fantastic views over the valley below.

Town Market: Each Saturday the entire town center of Tepoztlán becomes an open-air craft and food market.

Ex Convento de la Navidad: Declared a UNESCO heritage site in 1994, this convent was built between 1555 and 1580.

Cooking Classes: Chef Ana Garcia offers Mexican culinary immersion days in the shadow of the mountains. Calle Aniceto Villamar, 62520; lavillabonita.com.

Tubo Hotel: A groovy hotel made of concrete “tube” rooms (literally concrete tubes, stocked with beds, and minor amenities), each stacked in pyramids that also allow onsite camping. Tlacaltipac Glorieta Km. 17 S/N San Sebastián, 62520; tubohotel.com; doubles from $30.
