Surrounded by sandstone monoliths that throw off a russet glow at sunset, Tepoztlán is a magical place. It’s a popular place for practitioners of astrology, meditation, yoga, and other New Age pursuits, as well as Mexico City residents young and old for whom Cuernavaca has lost some appeal. You'll still find women selling homegrown produce in the lively weekend market surrounding the main square, and traditional celebrations that predate the conquest.
Tepoztlán's temperatures fluctuate, from blistering around midday to bitterly cold at night. Visitors who plan an overnight stay in the winter months should bring warmer clothing and a coat.
