Veracruz

Though it features a long coastline along the Gulf of Mexico, Veracruz remains off the radar for most foreign visitors. A slim crescent of land a day trip away from Mexico City, this eastern state boasts several major archaeological sites, rarely crowded yet packed with history. A holiday in Veracruz lets your experience the less-traveled side of the country, where it's easy to soak up the local culture by trying out traditional culinary specialties and touring the area's quaint colonial towns. Most travelers begin their adventure in the port city of Veracruz, eastern Mexico's major hub of tourism with good shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Take stress off the schedule by using our Mexico trip planner .
