Cuernavaca and Surroundings

For before or after your CELTA course!

Cuernavaca is a dream place, located in the heart of central Mexico, surrounded by some of the most beautiful and culturally rich regions of the country.  Cuernavaca is known as "the city of eternal spring" because of its consistent 22°C weather year round, which makes it a perfect destination for foreign students.

Cuernavaca's steep rolling hills and majestic gardens make it a charming colourful city. Tourists can enjoy an eclectic mix of cultural and modern sites, providing the chance to have a view of ancient Mexican culture and traditions and enjoy the most exciting attractions at water parks and nightclubs.

Teaching classes both lets you meet interesting people, people who have advanced and have insights in a society much unlike your own, and forces you to travel and know the city as a regular commuter. As well as this, comparative to the rest of Spanish-speaking Latin America, Mexico offers a much better economic situation to English teachers, which is always an important consideration to any job seekers or people thinking of starting a new profession.
