Around Mexico City Travel Guide

Booking in Advance

Many of these places are popular destinations for Mexican families and may fill up fast during major holidays and festivals. Advance reservations are advised for the Christmas period and Semana Santa. On the long weekend marking Independence Day (September 16) it's often hard to get a room in Cuernavaca or Valle de Bravo. You should also make reservations if you plan to visit Cuetzalan during the town's fair during the first week of October.
