Cultural Tips

CILAC Freire offers the information needed to all new students on norms and expectations of the Mexican culture, which helps to explore one’s own cultural preconceptions and make the adjustments need to live in a different culture. Every Monday we have the “Tips Culturales” session after classes.

 

 

Transportation to and from Mexico City Airport

Coming to Cuernavaca in the shuttle bus is very easy. Buses run frequently and cost is very reasonable. We highly recommend it. Ask for "Autobuses para Cuernavaca" (located one level above international arrivals, behind the fast-food area), or if a porter is helping you with your bags he can escort you. First buy a ticket for "Cuernavaca - Selva" at the Pullman de Morelos counter, and then go down one level to board the buses. The cost is $ 270 pesos (approximately $13 US), and the trip takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Buses run from 6:30 a.m. until midnight.

We do offer a direct transportation service for those students who prefer to be picked up at the airport. The cost is US $100.00 for one person. If you need to be picked up between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., we charge an extra fee. If you are interested, please ask us for details.
