Tuxpan

Veracruz

Due to its geographical location at Huasteca Veracruzana northern, Tuxpan, “The port of beautiful sunsets”, is beautified by a great natural splendor among mangroves, beaches, a river, reefs and gastronomy. It’s an excellent destination to live an unforgettable experience, one of those that should be kept in memory.

Either huapango or son huasteco sounding in the background, the Veracruz heritage is enjoyed just by walking through Historic Center streets. A beautiful mural stands out on one building facade: it’s the City Hall whose work, that highlights symbols of Tuxpan identity and its historical surroundings, was made in 1999.

On Avenida Juárez and Garizurieta St, the coral-and-quarry 18th-century Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption) shines. Further on is Reforma Park, where you can take a break while enjoying the region's pleasant climate savoring a delicious city’s typical drink.

A site that draws attention is the Museo de la Amistad México-Cuba (Mexico-Cuba Friendship Museum) that shows photographs and objects related to the Cuban Revolution. There’s also the Museo Regional de Antropología (Regional Museum of Anthropology) that houses more than 1,500 pieces of prehispanic groups that arrived in the region.

In the afternoon, it is worth seeing the Plaza Cívica’s fountain show: it combines its 240 water outlets with a range of 256 colors that go to programmed music rhythm.

The Callejón del Niño Perdido is a beautiful place built as part of the city's December 7th traditional celebration. Walk amid the lit candles placed all over the alley and at sculpture’s foot that is right there. Legend says candles help lost children to see their way.

Going shopping to the center is to get a local-made souvenir: handicrafts as wooden ornaments, fishing nets, hammocks, palm hats and shell ornaments.

The rich Tuxpan gastronomy is based mainly on seafood and fish dishes, besides traditionals such as bocoles, gorditas de manteca stuffed with beans, chicharrón and chamites (tamal de elote).

Getting from Xalapa is necessary to travel four hours and 20 minutes by road or two hours from Tampico, Tamaulipas.
