Every weekend you may go out for dancing or practice Spanish in a relaxed way. People from school, host families, teachers, staff and good friends from Cuernavaca participate!!

We offer excursions, for example to:

TAXCO is a colonial gem, with steep, twisting, cobbled streets and many picturesque buildings. The first silver shipped to Spain came from the mines of Taxco. José de la Borda made and spent three fortunes here in the 18th Century. He founded the present town and built the magnificent twin-towered rose-colored parish church of Santa Prisca, which soars above everything but the mountains. The main central area is full of shops and shopping tourists. Vendors will bargain and cheap silver items can often be found. By law must stamp real silver defined as 0.925 pure, stamped somewhere on the item with the number 925. The processions during Holy Week are spectacular.

MEXICO CITY'S - NACIONAL MUSEUM OF ANTHROPOLOGY AND HISTORY houses a vast collection illustrating pre-conquest Mexican culture.
