Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Cocoyoc is a city in the north-central part of the Mexican state of Morelos. It is located at 18°53′N 99°04′W. The city lies within the municipality of Yautepec. Cocoyoc reported 9,026 inhabitants in the 2005 census, and is the third-largest community in Yautepec.


Cocoyoc was founded by the tlahuicas, the Nahuatl group in the eleventh century, about 200 years before the Aztecs, who would become the dominant group. They establish their capital in Tenochtitán, that is Mexico today. Huitzihuitl, second king of the Aztecs, conquered Cocoyoc, and was so amazed by the ideal climate, fertile land and lush vegetation. He married the daughter of the lord of the conquered region.[1]
