Xilitla is about an 8 hour bus ride, or 7 hour drive from Mexico city. There are about 4 departures every day from Mexico city, one of the bus lines recommended is Primera Plus and is 600 pesos (about 30 US dollars). We recommend this option more then renting a car as the roads are not so good. From Xilitla you can get a taxi that takes you to Casa Caracol in 10 minutes.
Weather:
Xilitla is a rain forest, with long sunny days that can reach up to 35 ° C) and other cool days, with fog and rain, during December the evennings are cold so bring warm clothes. 
 
The fauna consists of harmless insects and small spiders, butterflies, frogs, snails, opossums, raccoons, armadillos, which mostly live in the bush. We recommend bringing natural mosquito repellent.
