State Of Veracruz

Where to Go & What to Do

The state of Veracruz has a musical essence, either because of the number of performers that have come out of this land, or because of the dances and chords that can be felt in its plazas.

The contact with the sea and with the rhythmic influences that came from the African slaves and the Spanish colonizers, has left a recognizable trace in the zapateado of the huapango dance, which can be related to the taconeo of flamenco and the fandango. 

A land of coffee, its beans give off an aroma that is well appreciated, which is mixed with other intense smells such as vanilla from Papantla or seafood from the sea.
