Xalapa, Coatepec and Xico Day Trip from Veracruz

About 60 miles (100 km) northwest of Veracruz lie the three cities of Xalapa, Coatepec and Xico — each full of Mexican history and culture that make for a great day trip from Veracruz. See beautiful examples of Spanish Colonial architecture, visit the 16th-century home of a former Mexican president, admire Baroque churches and leafy parks, and learn about the region’s coffee production. You’ll travel nearly 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) in elevation by the time you reach your final stop. Hotel pickup and drop-off are included

    Stop At: Museo El Lencero, Calle Rafael Murillo Camacho, Xalapa 91640 Mexico

    En route, visit the Lencero Museum (aka Museo de Lencero or Ex-Hacienda de Lencero), the Spanish colonial home that belonged to one of Hernán Cortés’ soldiers before it was converted into the home of General Antonio López de Santa Anna, a former president of Mexico. Inside the home, admire the period furniture and the peaceful gardens and lake.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Xalapa, Ver., Mexico

    Next, in Xalapa, the capital of the state of Veracruz, your guide takes you on a tour of the city’s top attractions. Pass by the Government Palace (Palacio de Gobierno), the seat of the state government; Xalapa Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), a Baroque- and Gothic-style church; the Paseo de Los Lagos, a circuit of walking paths between lakes and leafy trees; and the area surrounding the University of Veracruz (Universidad Veracruzana)

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Pueblo Magico Coatepec, Plaza Central Plaza Principal, Coatepec Mexico

    Continue to Coatepec, just a 20-minute drive away, a city designated as a Pueblo Mágico, or Magic Town for its culturally and historically significant characteristics. Swing by the 18th-century San Jerónimo Church (Iglesia de San Jerónimo), and purchase souvenirs at the market, if you like. Learn about the region’s coffee industry — at 4,100 feet (1,250 meters) above sea level, Coatepec has an ideal climate for growing coffee beans.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Xico, Ver., Mexico

    Then, enjoy a lunch break (own expense) at one of the places recommended by your guide.
    Drive 15 minutes to Xico, your last sightseeing stop, located at 9,200 feet (2,800 meters) above sea level. In this city surrounded by verdant mountains, visit Mary Magdalene’s Parish Church (Parroquia de Maria Magdalena) and the Dress Museum, admire colonial homes and try some of Xico’s famous mole, a spicy Mexican sauce. On your way back to Veracruz, drive through the Texolo area and visit a coffee plantation. Your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.
