Park of the Americas

Poza Rica

Several stairs lead to the top of Cerro Abuelo, an old hill that was used to plant sugarcane and coffee. It was also a refuge for workers to hold union meetings in the early 20th century.

At the end of the 1950s, the local government decided that it was a good place for people to enjoy the view, which spread all over Poza Rica and Tihuatlán and Coatzintla neighboring municipalities. Then, the construction of actually Parque de las Américas began, inaugurated on September 16, 1957.

The place consists of a 100 meters above sea level viewpoint that commemorates the union among American continent countries. To do this, 20 flags placed in circumference are waved. The one in Mexico is on a 40 meter high mast.
