If you are driving from Mexico DF, take the motorway direction Cuernavaca/Tepoztlán. After paying the toll, take the exit for TEPOZTLAN, keeping to your right-hand side, then follow the road and take the 1st turn to your left. Almost immediately, you will see a sign for Mexico DF and Cuautla. Stay on the left side taking the Mexico DF exit to your left, as if you are going back onto the motorway. Do not take the exit to Cuautla or you will end up on the motorway again. Drive across the yellow bridge (an overpass over the motorway). You will see a sign for San Juan Tlacotengo straight ahead of you. Follow it. It may look as if there is no road going down the hill but keep on driving down and the short road becomes a crossroad.
Turn left now driving uphill. This is the road to San Juan Tlacotengo also called 22 de Febrero. Keep going up this road for about 1 kilometer. When you see the marker for 1 kilometer (on your right), the road takes a sharp curve. Very shortly after you pass this curve, you will see on your right, a newly constructed wall. Make sure you do not drive past this wall as then you will miss the entrance to Ocelotzin Road. The beginning of Ocelotzin Road is where the wall ends. You can see Ocelotzin painted on a post in red and yellow paint. Turn right onto it and follow the road up and to the left. There are signs in the form of a yellow sun painted on posts, trees and walls all along the way that will guide you to Casa de la Vida.
