Description
South of Cuernavaca lies the resort area of Tequesquitengo (teh-kehs-kee-TEHN-goh), on Lake Tequesquitengo. The village was moved to its present location in 1820 when rising lake waters forced the abandonment of an earlier site. Between 1957 and 1958 the lake rose nearly 13 feet, inundating lakeside homes and the first floor of a hotel. To restore the water level, a 1.7-mile tunnel was bored through a nearby mountain rim.
The lake, about 3,000 feet above sea level, has calm, spring-fed waters ideal for water skiing; it is the site of championship exhibitions. Swimming, boating and fishing also are possible.
