Papantla is a place that has transcended time where the sky and the land converse. Everything in this place has wings: the birds, the wind and the man who spins in concentric circles from above, hanging by his feet, to the sound of the flute and drum in the unique ritual of the flying men, considered an Intangible Cultural Heritage. They ask the Gods for the fertility of the land and the Gods have given them the sweet aroma of vanilla that reaches the Cumbre Tajin festival. If you want to learn about the Totonac culture, visit the Takilhsukut Theme Park and you too will want to be a bird and ask for abundance on the land.
