The capital of Veracruz is surrounded by mountains and covered in a layer of mist. It’s a cheerful colonial city with interesting alleyways, parks, and museums that house interesting pre-Hispanic pieces as well as modern and contemporary works of art. There is a good reason why it has been nicknamed the “Athens of Veracruz”.
Nearby are the Magical Towns of Xico and Coatepec, famous for their natural areas and for their coffee, as well as Jalcomulco, ideal for rafting.
