Comment[edit]

There is currently a redirect from Cuernavaca, Morelos to Cuernavaca, but the redirect should be replaced with an article for the municipality of Cuernavaca. [[User:GK|gK ¿?]] 13:42, 20 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Yes, then we can tell the truth about the city. GeV

Some Clean-up[edit]

I've noticed a few errors in the article; one is that the word "colectivo" connects to an article about Argentinian public transportation. Besides that, so far I haven't heard anyone use the word "colectivo" for the buses in Cuernavaca. (I'm a Canadian who's been living in Cuernavaca since August.) I changed this to link the "Pesero" or "Microbus" of Mexico City, since its a much more related link.

Also, the article contains some English that needs fixing (e.g. from the Transportation section, "There is no way around" for "There's no way around it.")

Finally, as the previous quotation shows, large parts of the are worded like a traveller's guide. Another example: "Do not hesitate to order or just catch a cab in the city - it is usually very secure service." The article should present information from a more neutral perspective, rather than the local-giving-advice-to-tourist perspective.

I've started with the "Public Transportation" section.

The expression "colectivo" was also used in MXC, but probably younger lads don't know it; "microbus" is of relatively recent coinage (early 90's if I recall correctly), when most "peseros" were replace by small vans. Louie (talk) 01:08, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
On the other hand, I agree: some parts of the article sound like advertisement; I did a little cleanup today in the education section. Louie (talk) 01:08, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

actually the most used expression for buses in Cuernavaca is "ruta"; the terms "microbus" and "pesero" are almost exclusive of Mexico City, I've never heard those outside of the capital. Chnt 14:37, 3 January 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.44.93.16 (talk)

100 anniversary, 200 anniversary, 500 anniversary[edit]

There are celebrations for the centennial of the Mexican Revolution, bicentennial for the country (although Wikipedia often disregards this and takes 1821 as the date, irritating Mexicans. Examples: the history of the City of Los Angeles, the history of the City of San Francisco, etc.). Many of the constructions depicted on this article will be 500 years old in as soon as 11 years. There should be also 500 year celebrations for some of them.


Tourism[edit]

Wikipedia is not a tourist guide and the article on a city should not include section on specific hotels or restaurants unless they are of extraordinary importance to the city and its culture and history. Closed restaurants and hotel chains certainly do not fit that description for which reason I've removed a couple of sections on Sumiya/Camino Real and Restaurant Gaia.·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 16:28, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
