Please note our Cuernavaca school is currently closed as we strongly feel student safety is at risk in Cuernavaca. The U.S. State Department warning of January 9, 2014 advises against travel to Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. There are no such advisories for travel to Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico!

Cuernavaca is located in Mexico’s state of Morelos, a stunning 60 mile drive on a four-lane toll highway through the mountains south of Mexico City. Cuernavaca is easy to get to as buses are frequent to and from Mexico City's international airport as well as other destinations.

Cuernavaca is a historical city with a definite Mexican flavor and welcoming residents. First settled around the 10th century by people related to the Aztec’s, later infamous inhabitants included Spaniard Hernan Cortes. In the 1500s, after the Spanish conquered Mexico City, Cortes built his palace in Cuernavaca after being granted the land by the Spanish crown. Others too have left their mark on this beautiful city, including Carlotta & Maximilian who resided in Cuernavaca after the French intervention in the mid 1800s.

In Cuernavaca each day there is something new to do. The city has museums, haciendas, churches, restaurants, nightclubs,swimming pools, natural water parks, golf courses, spas, and more. Pyramids, lakes, mountains, and interesting towns and villages such as Taxco and Tepoztlan surround Cuernavaca.

Any time of year is perfect to visit as Cuernavaca, which is known as the "City of Eternal Spring", as it offers year round temperatures typically in the 80s with cool nights.

Instituto Chac-Mool is located in a mostly residential area of Cuernavaca called Colonia Pradera, just a short stroll to downtown. A beautiful walking city, frequent bus service and inexpensive taxis are plentiful. Shopping, restaurants and services are located close to the school and the nearby host family residences.
