Mexico - Veracruz (Chapter)
This is the Veracruz chapter from Lonely Planet’s Mexico guidebook.
Imagine a mini-version of Machu Picchu but without the tourists, a ballroom dance with a sexy Afro-Cuban twist and a mountain as fickle and majestic as Kilimanjaro – you’ll find all this and more on Mexico’s central Gulf coast, where the runaway juggernaut called ‘global homogenization’ gets stopped in it tracks.
- decipher a triumvirate of Mesoamerican cultures in Xalapa’s Museo de Antropología
