The charm of Veracruz
Veracruz, which is introduced a little in the corner of the guidebook.Veracruz is a state and a city.Veracruz is an important and unforgettable region for Mexico.
Veracruz is a long, narrow state in the central-eastern part of Mexico that stretches north-south along the Gulf of Mexico.In the north is the Huasteca and Totonaca cultures, in the center is the city of Veracruz, which has the port of Veracruz, the gateway to the eastern side of Mexico, and in the south is the region where the Olmec, the first large culture in Mesoamerica, flourished.
On the west side of the state rises Citraltepetl, commonly known as Pico de Orizaba, the highest peak in Mexico at 5636m.The east and west of the long, narrow state have different climates, as moist air from the Gulf of Mexico hits the Sierra Gorda Oriente mountains and brings rain, while dry air flows to the west.
Coffee production is thriving in the Sierra Gorda Mountains due to its altitude and moderate rainfall, and "Veracruz Coffee" is known for high quality coffee along with Chiapas and Oaxaca.
Veracruz does not have world-famous archaeological sites such as Teotihuacan or Chichen Itza, or famous resorts such as Cancun or Los Cabos.For this reason, it is not included in the golden route of Mexico travel for foreign travelers, but it is recommended for intermediate to advanced travelers who want to learn more about Mexico and feel its history.Of course, we also offer tours that even first-time visitors to Mexico can enjoy.
Due to the nature of tourism resources and logistical reasons, it is more efficient to add 1-2 days to other tourist routes than to travel only in Veracruz.
- Attach a route from Mexico City to Oaxaca
- Stick to Mexico City & Teotihuacan Route
- Attached to Mexico City & Puebla Cholula Route
