In this town of rich natural resources you will directly notice the imposing Cerro del Tepozteco Tepozteco Hill, a main tourist attraction where you will find a pre-Hispanic construction on the top of the hill. It is said that this site has a positive energy force, which is why it draws hundreds of visitors during the spring equinox. Divided into eight colonial neighborhoods, as you walk along Tepoztlan’s picturesque cobblestone streets you will see a significant 16th century convent, various museums and several stores selling all kinds of crafts and esoteric items.
In the superb nature areas of the Parque National El Tepozteco National Park, you can observe a broad range of flora and fauna on ecotourism excursions.

At Tepoztlan, you must try the beautiful tepoznieves, ice cream that comes in avocado, tequila and mezcal flavors, among many others.
