What to Expect
On this 5-hour journey of discovery you’ll explore the archaeological sites of La Antigua, Zempoala, and Quiahuixtlan. First you’ll head out to the Quiahuixtlan archaeological zone.

In Mayan, Quiahuixtlan means a rainy place. The city of Veracruz was founded directly across from this site, and it was here that the first city hall in continental America was built.

The archeological site contains a cemetery with 43 small gravesites in the form of small-scale shrines. It is believed that Mexico’s tradition of bringing offerings to gravesites on the Day of the Dead originated here.

Next, the tour continues to the Zempoala archaeological zone, which was a Totonacan ceremonial and astronomical center.

After exploring the Zempoala site you’ll visit La Antigua for a tour of the city and to see the hanging bridge. If you like, you can stop at a handicraft shop to watch the craftsmen make items out of coconut husks.
