Gastronomía

Gastronomy and other cultural expressions of the territory on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico chosen by Hernán Cortés to found the Royal Villa Rica Santa Vera Cruz almost five centuries ago, has been marked forever by the mix and encounter of two cultures, other factors that have enriched regional cuisine, such as the adoption of foreign customs in the nineteenth century and the Spanish and African influences that vary in some regions.

Los Tuxtlas

Area In this area, the menu consists on cassava chilpachole, bean papayanes with dough and piloncillo, tegogolos (snails) or iguana in moxte (green leaves). If you plan to visit this area during your trip don't forget to try the famous rice dishes like tumbada- both in broth and with seafood-, banana tostones, fish a la Veracruzana and the coastal version of chilpachole: with crab.

Here you can find sicas or chicatanas -ants- in sauce, the gasparitos -iquimite petals- with rice and hand made tortillas; another flower, the quiebracha, combined with eggs; beef chileatoles, chicken or pork; quelites with beans and dough; tepejilotes broth or Xico mole.

STATEMENT REGARDING SEPTEMBER 19TH EARTHQUAKE IN CENTRAL MEXICO

The sympathies of the Mexico Tourism Board, and the entire Mexican tourism industry, go out to those affected by the earthquake in Central Mexico on September 19, 2017.

Mexico’s Federal, State and Local Governments have activated response plans in order to support the individuals impacted as well as to assess damages.

According to the latest information, damages have been reported in parts of Puebla, Morelos, and Mexico City. Tourist attractions remain open and functioning in these destinations. While the international airports in Mexico City and Puebla suspended operations as a standard precaution yesterday, both airports reopened within 4 hours and are now fully operational.

Additionally, we are thankful to report that no other international tourism destinations in Mexico have been affected and are operating normally.

Given these facts, there is no reason for visitors to cancel travel plans to Mexico.

The Mexico Tourism Board, and the entire tourism industry, are focused on ensuring visitors in affected destinations receive any assistance necessary while continuing with their existing travel plans.
