About Cuautla

The “Place of Eagles” in Morelos is considered the second most important city in the State, only behind the State’s capital. Cuautla is a beautiful colonial city where an excellent warm climate and beautiful mineral water springs converge for making it the favorite of many international tourists. Founded by the Olmeca tribe of the Chalcatzingo locality, Cuautla was during the Prehispanic times member of the Plan de Amilpas. This was a group of 25 towns in the area of the current states of Morelos and Guerrero, subdued under the leadership of the Huextepec people. Thus in the XVI century, Spanish conquerors dedicated themselves to defeating Huextepec for winning the loyalty of the rest of the Plan de Amilpas members. Spanish troops were commanded by Gonzalo de Sandoval and soon the Indians were transformed into laborers in the new sugar cane estates founded by the invaders. A century after, the growth of Cuautla earned it the rank of municipality and elected its first mayor. The armed struggle of Mexico’s Independence turned Cuautla into the venue of cruel episodes that gravely harmed its population. In 1811 Insurgent General Morelos reached the locality for ordering its fortification, because for its geographic and structural characteristics it was outstanding as a good place for facing the enemy. Thus, in 1812 Morelos, Leonardo Bravo, Hermenegildo Galeana and Mariano Matamoros faced the royal army, commanded by Felix Calleja in a series of violent armed attacks. Located on the territorial limits of the central Mexican state of Morelos, the City of Cuautla is 4,265 feet over sea level and extends over approximately 154 squared kilometers. The place of “Arboleda” has a benevolent and predominantly sub-humid warm climate with rains during the summer and registers an average temperature of 68.9°F.
