The town of Cuauhtémoc developed after the coming of the Mennonites in the 1920s although very few Mennonites lived in town, for it was the Mennonite shopping center. A railroad, a highway, and a bus line connected Cuauhtémoc with Chihuahua.ClimateCiudad Cuauhtémoc has a semi-arid climate (Köppen climate classification BSk) moderated by its altitude. Winters are cool and sunny with a January average of 7.5C and temperatures regularly fall below freezing. Occasionally, the city can see 1 or 2 snowfalls per year.

A four-lane highway, completed in 1986, connected the city with the city of Chihuahua, the state capital. Another highway connected Cuauhtémoc with Col. Anahuac, where a large pulp mill is located. The Gran Vision highway, which is to be continued to the west coast through the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains, joins the city to the western hinterlands, and another highway leaving the city passes through the Mennonite colonies to the north (Manitoba Colony).Plan your visit to Cuauhtemoc and other destinations in Mexico using our Mexico online travel planner.
