Parque Ecológico Macuiltépetl

Xalapa

This place is one of the most beloved and significant for the Xalapa people and is part of a volcano that became extinct thousands of years ago and has a fascinating diversity, as it is home to species typical of the Bosque de Niebla (Cloud Forest) such as the seven leaves tree, tree ferns and monsteras such as Swiss cheese plant.

The park is open all year long, has no entrance fee and also has a museum dedicated to the fauna of Veracruz. Another attraction is its observatory, a viewpoint from where you can see through binoculars all the surrounding landscape.

Pero además encontrarás otros animales como cacomixtles, tlacuaches y ardillas, transitando libremente entre los árboles.
