  • We went to the Park and were delighted! Everything is green, there are some beautiful flowers, the roads to upload are in very good condition. What is wrong is the "Museum" in the Summit. It is rather a herpetarium. It looks dirty and smells bad, but worth a visit for the species of snakes that have. It is worth knowing the place!

  • Beautiful forest with stone-paved paths that has a viewpoint and a mausoleum for Veracruz Ilustres. From this place you can see the best view of the city of Xalapa and its surroundings. This place should be a must stop for anyone visiting the beautiful city of Xalapa.

  • Popularly known as the Hill of Macuiltepec or Macuiltepetl. It is a protected Natural Area, converted into an ecological park. It has 32 hectares of forest, which houses nearly 100 species of birds and many other animals and plants. It is a magical place, surrounded by nature and excellent for walks outdoors, preferably accompanied by because a place is not 100% safe. It also has history, from pre-Hispanic times and by the presence of a mausoleum pyramid erected to guard the remains of several pedegrales leaders of Veracruz.
