Most people don´t realize this but Veracruz State is one of the most beautiful regions of Mexico and I am not speaking of the Gulf of Mexico here. If one simply drives down the cuota from the flatlands south of Cordoba to Chiapas or Tabasco then one is missing one of the most spectacularly beautiful environments in Mexico. The entrance to the state from Puebla State descending the plateau into Orizaba is incredibly scenic but anyone driving that route knows that.
*At Orizaba, get off of the toll road and drive through Cordoba on the free road. You will only add about 30 minutes to your journey but you will add immensely to your life´s experience. Talk about a beautiful drive and do not miss a side trip through the wonderful gardens of Fortin de Las Flores.
*Leave the toll road and drive through the Tuxtlas and by Lake Catemaco and you will be amazed at the verdant countryside you will pass while adding only an hour or so to your drive time to Southern Mexico. Stop for lunch at Catemaco and enjoy a cold beer with your lunch at lakeside.
There is much more to see in this beautiful state but I have run out of time for now. More later.
