Cuautla, officially La heroica e histórica Cuautla, Morelos or H. H. Cuautla, Morelos, is a city and municipality in the Mexican state of Morelos, about 104 kilometers south of Mexico City. In the 2010 census the city population was 154,358. The municipality covers 153.651 km² . Cuautla is the third most populous city in the state, after Cuernavaca and Jiutepec. The city was founded on 4 April 1829. Cuautla is constantly changing, as American enterprises are emerging in Morelos.HistoryCuautla was the scene of one of the fiercest battles of the War of Independence during a siege which began on February 19 and ended on May 2, 1812. The city was taken by forces of the priest and General José María Morelos y Pavón, who defended it against the Spaniard General Félix María Calleja for weeks before having to retreat.During the Mexican Revolution Cuautla was the first city conquered by the forces of Emiliano Zapata, who was born in Anenecuilco, just south of Cuautla.Daily lifeIn most family households, both parents work full-time, while their child either attends school or follows his parents' career. Children of this area have little access to computers and internet, unless of course the household income is above average. Those who do attend a school of any sort typically have little to no homework and spend their free time outdoors. Many children enjoy trips to small family-owned stores, which have games which are referred to as "las maquinitas," which are used for social gatherings and, to some extent, gambling. Also, many families attend the nearest chapel regularly, but many do not have the time for this.
