The Amacuzac River flows through Mexico’s Morelo state, the second smallest state in the Mexican Republic. Its capital city, Cuernavaca, is dubbed “The City of Eternal Spring” by poets and visitors because of its glorious weather and lush flower gardens. River rafting trips on the Amacuzac River are convenient to Mexico City, which is only a few hours away.
