Wikipedia, Feb. 26, 2013 (Cuernavaca; Classical Nahuatl: Cuauhnāhuac "near the woods"; the capital and largest city of the state of Morelos in Mexico. It is also a municipality located about 85 km (53 mi) south of Mexico City on the D-95 freeway. The city was nicknamed the "City of Eternal Spring" by Alexander von Humboldt in the nineteenth century. It has long been a favorite escape for Mexico City and foreign visitors because of this warm, stable climate and abundant vegetation. Aztec emperors had summer residences there, and even today, many famous people as well as Mexico City residents maintain homes there)
