Rural living in the remarkable valley of Tepoztlán

The rural colonial enclave of Tepoztlán has been a longtime favorite location for Mexico City dwellers seeking a home in the Mexican countryside, as well foreign residents seeking places off the beaten path.

Situated in the state of Morelos, 75 km (46 miles) south of Mexico City an elevation of 5,380 feet (1,640 meters) above sea-level, the town offers a divine micro-climate with warm spring-like temperatures most days of the year, mild winters, and long daylight hours through the seasons.

Tepoztlán offers foreign residents an opportunity to live in a rural setting, characterized by nature and mountains. Most properties sold here are rural or semi-rural homes featuring extensive gardens and mountain views.

Residents enjoy the natural beauty, the peace and sanguine atmosphere the town is renowned for.  The center of town offers a range of everyday local services and amenities, and the city of Cuernavaca is about a 40 minute drive away; the southern reaches of Mexico City can typically be reached in an hour by road, depending on traffic.

The real estate market in Tepoztlán

Since the 1970s, Tepoztlán has been a favored destination for people living in Mexico City to have a country home and is a place that is especially attractive to bohemians and those seeking alternative lifestyles, and tranquil country living—far removed from the capital’s traffic, and yet still close enough for convenience.

Homes for sale here have always traded at a relative premium to those situated in other parts of the state of Morelos, and over the last decade, land and property prices have increased substantially.

Existing homes typically stand on lot sizes of between one and two thousand square meters (10,000-20,000 square feet), and include landscaped gardens, terraces offering attractive views, and some also have swimming pools.

Typically, the smallest lot sizes are 1,000 square meters (c.10,700 square feet) —or sold multiples of this— and although it’s possible to acquire smaller plots of land in some places in and around the town, small lots are rarely available.
