Discovering the Village of Tepoztlán, Mexico

Tepoztlán, pictured here, has been fascinating strangers for a long time...first there were missionaries and conquistadores and now tourists, movie stars like Angelina Jolie and holistic healers. One of the things that's singular about Tepoztlán, Mexico is the deeply rooted Aztec culture and it's proximity to the larger cities of Mexico City and Cuernavaca.

"If it weren't for the influx of big-city sophisticates every weekend, you'd never guess that Mexico City is just beyond the mountains, 47 miles north, or that Cuernavaca, the language-school capital of Mexico, is 11 miles south." Read this article explaining the story behind Tepoztlán, Mexico and what it's like in modern days.
