    Taxco is really nice!, the time in Taxco was perfect (around 45min), no more time can be given due to the long distance from CDMX. In Cuernavaca the Cathedral was really nice, apart from that there was not much more to see, or we did not receive guidance on what can be seen (better to search in advance) during free time (around 30min). The arrival time to CDMX is around 8:30pm Overall it was a Nice experience and the Guide was really friendly and helpful
