HOW TO ARRIVE AT ICF.
If driving, instructions to arrive at the ICF and a map are available here
If you travel by bus from Mexico City, the easiest is to board a Pullman de Morelos bus from Terminal de Autobuses del Sur (Taxqueña) to Cuernavaca Centro or Cuernavaca Casino de la Selva. Request to stop at the Paloma de la Paz roundabout. Taxis usually queue behind the bus and may board one easily. Ask the driver to take you to “IBT”; the Instituto de Biotecnología UNAM, which is located just opposite the ICF. It is important to note, if you are bringing luggage, that you should buy a bus ticket with seat numbers 1 to 4 at the ticket office. You are allowed to bring a small bags (no more than a 15 kg bag) only in those seats! Otherwise you will have to store your bags in the luggage compartment, and only retreive them at the terminal stop at the centre of Cuernavaca.
The hotel of the event is the Hotel GS Cuernavaca: http://www.gshoteles.com.mx/gs-cuernavaca.html , where all sponsored participants are booked to stay from Monday 1st of August through Thursday 4th.
