Introducing Northern Veracruz

The northern half of Veracruz state, between the coast and southern fringes of the Sierra Madre Oriental, mainly consists of lush rolling pastureland. Laguna de Tamiahua is the region’s largest wetland, while the Gulf has some fine isolated (sometimes polluted) beaches. The major archaeological attraction is El Tajín.

At the regular army checkpoints along this coast the soldiers are usually very respectful toward tourists.
