Visit the most important ceremonial centre of the Totonac culture in the El Tajín archaeological zone. Explore the impressive Magical Town of Papantla, the birthplace of the Papantla Flyers.

Start the tour with pickup at your hotel at 8 a.m. and travel for 2.5 hours to the archaeological zone.

Arrive at the most important ceremonial centre of the Totonac people, the El Tajín archaeological zone, which combines history, knowledge, and beauty in one place. Next, admire the pre-colonial buildings amidst the jungle, which include a palace, a temple, and football courts. Marvel at the astonishing Pyramid of the Niches, considered an agricultural, civic, and solar calendar, due to its 7 levels and 365 niches.

After this, continue the tour to Papantla, also known as a Magical Town, located a few kilometres from Totonacapan. This place is the origin of vanilla and where local men performed fertility rituals. Learn how the melting pot of pre-colonial and Spanish cultures led to a blend of folklore and flavour; a heritage that still endures in the region. Explore the historic centre of Papantla and enjoy panoramic views of Papantla from the observation platform.

Return to Veracruz at 6:00 p.m., where you will be dropped off at your hotel.
