ARCHAELOGICAL ZONES

During the prehispanic time, the State of Veracruz welcomed the Totonaca, Olmeca and Huasteca old cultures . Near the camp, the Totonac was the predominant one and the archaelogical places that can be found in our region are representative of them. Our personal will guide you to the place of "El Tajín", one of the biggest of the country; as well as to the Museum of Anthropology of Xalapa, the second but important of Mexico. Close the camp, they are the areas of "Vega de la Peña" and "Cuajilote". Inside this category, we also offer the visit to the archaeological area of "Cantona" that even when it is in the state of Puebla, near of the limit with Veracruz, it is part of the prehispanic cultures of the region with a structure and exceptional architectural distribution that makes it different to the other ones, being constituted in a magic place that is worthwhile to visit:
