Tampico

Tampico is located in the border state of Tamaulipas. This state has 260 miles of coastline and several beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, including Miramar, Playa Bagdad and La Carbonera. Tamaulipas has a number of important cities besides Tampico such as Matamoros, and the business centers, Reynosa and Ciudad Victoria, the state’s capital.

Tamaulipas’ rich coasts and forests have been inhabited for more than 8,000 years. In the 16th century, during the colonial period, the Spanish colonizers and Franciscan missionaries were drawn to the area's abundant natural resources and strategic coastal location.

The state has a diversity of ecosystems, from dry, cactus-adorned inland areas, to beautiful beaches and the dramatic mountains and valleys of the Sierra Madre Oriental in the southeast. The El Cielo Biosphere Reserve is a must visit place to enjoy the vast forest, offering activities such as camping, mountain biking, hiking, birding tours and excursions.

The most important venue is Expo-Tampico which is situated by the sea. The facility offers 123,927 square-foot ofmeetings space with 3 exposition areas and 18 convention areas with a capacity of 8,500 people. The Fiesta Inn Tampico is another great venue with 124 guestrooms and suites, and a 6,248 square-foot event hall that can hold 180 people. The Hampton Inn by Hilton Ciudad Victoria has 105 guestrooms and 1,000 square feet of event space that can accommodate up to 60 guests.

Things to do

16,000 Feet to the Orizaba Peak in Veracruz

Mount Orizaba is for climbers who take it to the very top. With an expert indigenous guide (you’ll need him), you ascend 16,000 ft to the top of Mexico’s highest peak and—after Kilimanjaro—the second most prominent volcano in the world. In the territory below, you kayak rapids or even take the falls at Tomata. Mount Orizaba is for climbers who take it to the very top.
