Xalapa (sometimes spelled as Jalapa) is the capital city of the Mexican state of Veracruz and the name of the surrounding municipality. The full name of the city is Xalapa-Enriquez, named in honor of 19th-century Governor Juan de la Luz Enriquez. The city's nickname "La ciudad de las flores" (The City of Flowers), was bestowed by Alexander von Humboldt, who visited the town on 10 February 1804.
This city has been described as an enclave of writers, artists, college students, and musicians, with Baroque and Neoclassical architecture and cobblestone streets. At night you can hear top-notch live music, by day visit great museums, and eat, eat, eat. Nearby mountains and forests are are gorgeous for hiking and picnicking.
