Tour Information


Overview
  • Learn about Mexico’s pre-Columbian Totanac culture at two important Totanac sites — the archaeological ruins of El Tajín and the 13th-century city of Papantla. This full-day trip takes you three hours north of Veracruz, where you’ll see El Tajín’s World Heritage-listed ruins with a guide, learning about its pyramids and plazas. Then tour Papantla and learn about its cultural traditions, from flying pole dancers to vanilla, which the Totanacs grew in this region before the Spanish invasion.

A long day trip from Heroica Veracruz lasting almost four hours each way but well worth it for us. Our guide Rafael Ortiz was excellent: very safe and skillful driver, so knowledgeable about the history of the period and culture of the Totonacos civilization, obviously proud of his heritage and a really good person. It would have been difficult to spend 10 hours with a guide we just met in the morning if he wasn't such a delight to be with. The ruins were different than others we have seen throughout Mexico so far. Although the pre-Hispanics were mostly trade oriented unlike the Aztecs, one can see the many cross-pollination of ideas and beliefs that were acquired through contact. Enjoyed a lovely lunch across from the Zocalo and a short tour of the town of Papantla before returning to Veracruz. Rafael was a relaxed and engaged guide throughout our entire time with him. His English is excellent. We recommend him without reservations.

Absolutely loved it. This is my 1st trip to Mexico, I do not speak spanish and asked for a english guide. Both the driver/guide and the tour guide at El Tajin. Took the time to play translator for me. It was a absolute blast and would do it again.

Well planned. Excellent value. Everything was on time. The guide was very knowledgeable and made time to explain everything. He made sure we had time to see everything. Lunch after El Tajín was in a very good restaurant.

The ruins are spectacular. The driver/guide was excellent. The drive from Veracruz was 4 hours each way, but the drive was rewarded with a long and well preserved site.
