    Xalapa has a pretty healthy nightlife. With my local friends, we bar hopped all over the town. There are too many places to name and keep track of.But one place that we kept circling back around to was the little alleyway off of Primo Verdad. The locals may have a name for this little corridor, but I'm not sure what it is.On this small street,...

The restaurant is a casual place, with large tables, able to suit any size group. There are a number of flat screen televisions playing the sports games of the day (but without any sound). The...

In good weather, those go quickly so you may have to wait a while if you don't have a reservation....

    Tlacotalpan Restaurants

    At time of my visit, with very few exceptions, all restaurants were lined up along the riverfront in the city center, in the area just named Zona de Restaurantes. There are few restaurants, one next to the other, and they all seemed to me selling the same food at the same price. On the menu basic seafood dishes such as sopas de mariscos, cockteles,...

    Xico Transportation

    To get to and from Xico, there are busses running to and from Xalapa constantly throughout the day. A ride to Xico runs around 20.00 pesos (USD$2.00), or so.I cannot find the location of exactly where these busses leave from, but when I find it, I will post it.

Santiago Tuxtla

  • jhonw's Profile Photo

    by jhonw Written Apr 8, 2007

    Favorite thing: Santiago is located in the Las Tuxtlas area of Veracruz.. It is about 3 hrs by local bus south of Veracruz.. The area is an old volcanic range with highest peak being around 5000 feet. Winding twisting roads, brooks and rivers meandering thru the valleys, pastures dot the hilly country side between the areas of lush jungle growth,

    Like most towns in Mexico, most everything of interest is located on or nearby the zocalo.. The small park itself is very pleasant.. curved paths, lots of beaches to sit on and many trees, flowers and bushes.. The center piece of the park is one of the Giant Olmec Heads that was found in a nearby area.. The mercado is located along one side of the park.. A small, but bery nice regional museum is worth your time to see.. (the small town and archeology site Tres Zapotes can also be visited from here.) The unusual, round shaped Hotel Castellanos is located on another corner of the square with a terrific view overlooking the park.. The food is excelent and the prices are right as well.. (also swiming pool if your interested) Foot bridges connect the town over the river Santiago that spits the town in two.. If you hapen to be here during hoilday of Dias de los Muertos be sure to visit the local cememtary located on west end of town. (just follow all the locals) Other towns / places of interest in the area are San Andres, Eyipantla waterfalls, Catemaco.. There are also many more small burgs and a great coastline with many beach along this part of the gulf coast.. Basic spanish speaking abilities is a must to visit this part of Mexico.

    Fondest memory: the central park, museum, wandering / exploring all the little streets, a couple of bars on the rivers edge, Dia de los Muertos, dinner and swiming pool at Hotel Castellanos.. Area around second class bus station.. Nothing overly exciting about the place, pretty laidback area, but in general the town has a good feel to it.. Good place to visit, perhaps spend a day or two if your interested..

    A cosy restaurant upstairs on the western side of the zocalo. Make sure you get a table on the balcony so you can watch all the activity in and around the zocalo.The meals here are excellent - a lot of variety and very tasty. Main courses average around the $4 - $6 mark. Friendly staff, good service. It was here that I was introduced to Xanath,...

Best in late afternoon/evening, when the zocalo is busiest.The menu is comprehensive, the food is excellent and the prices are...

On this road there are a couple bars that play dance music and a few that are more relaxed for sitting and talking.However many of the locals who befriended us said they typically just buy some beers in...

    Jalcomulco Warnings and Dangers

    The town itself is quite safe to walk at all hours of the night. The only real problem or warning I can think of while visiting Jalcomulco is in regards to money.It is wise to stop before you get to Jalcomulco and get cash. There are no banks in Jalcomulco, no ATM's, etc. Also few places accept credit card, so it is a cash-only town.oh, an after...
