Tapijulapa is in one of Mexico's rainiest areas. It can rain any day of the year, so if you're driving, take care. And once there, you'll need an umbrella, raincoat and slip-resistant shoes.
The name “Coatepec” comes from the Náhuatl (cóatl, snake and tepetl, hill) and means “On the Hill of Snakes”. The region got into the coffee business in the early 19th century, when the first arabigo beans were planted in the fertile soil. Today, the quality of Coatepec coffee has brought the region fame far and wide.
