Is Cuernavaca Worth Visiting for Solo Female Travelers?

Cuernavaca, often called the "City of Eternal Spring," is a vital tourism destination located in the south-central part of Mexico, in Morelos state. Known for its perennially pleasant climate and captivating history, visitors are spellbound by its lush gardens, colonial architecture, and rich artistic heritage. It's home to captivating attractions such as the Palacio de Cortés, where Spanish conqueror Hernán Cortés once resided, now a history museum, and the 16th-century Cuernavaca Cathedral set in a tranquil former monastery. Also noteworthy are the city's ample array of tranquil parks and gardens, particularly the enchanting Jardín Borda, filled with tropical flowers. Cuernavaca's vibrant street markets, local culinary delights, indigenous crafts, and its active nightlife make it an enthralling tourist paradise.

Solo travel experience

Cuernavaca is easy to get to from the CDMX airport or the Terminal de Sur Taxqueña. Take the Pullman de Morelos direct bus right into town. Cuernavaca has Uber so I used that to get around. My primary reason for visiting here was to learn cumbia dancing at the Academia de Baile Calor Latino, which I found on YouTube believe it or not. This was truly a great experience, the owner has created a welcoming and fun place to spend time and really learn Latin dancing. So I spent my time dancing, and wandering around the main square trying restaurants, practicing Spanish, and people watching. I felt safe in the parts of town I frecuented. I took Uber to the Unesco world heritage site Xochicalco ruins. There was no cell service so I had to figure out the buses back. The bus drivers were very helpful and made sure I made the right connections. I plan to go back later this year to dance again and explore other areas. Feel free to contact me if you want to chat.
