When you go to Costa Esmeralda, you have to visit Los Tuxtlas. It is one of the most beautiful places your eyes will ever see. This town is located in southern Veracruz, very close to the mystic Catemaco. It has a simple environment full of vegetation.

Its name comes from the Nahuatl word Toxtli, meaning rabbit or yellow birds. Its lush vegetation awaits you so you can stroll through it and fall in love with the surroundings. Touch the tree leaves wherever you go, and take a look at species that are unique to the region. More than 500 species of butterflies alone have been recorded living around the countless bodies of water flowing to the sea. 

Walk along its paths, and get lost in the mist that mysteriously envelopes the trees and the vast variety of plants.
