So I'm trying to figure out how many hours travel it will take to get from the border to Veracruz. Crossing at Los Indios has been suggested in other posts.
Driving time depends on lots of stuff like how often you take potty breaks, how heavy a foot you have, and the route you take. For us, Los Indios (once you've cleared paperwork and stuff) to Veracruz would be about 15 hours driving. That would break down as 7 hours Los Indios to Tampico (via San Fernando, Soto la Marina, and Aldama, although I think going via Cd Victoria would result about the same), 3 hours Tampico to Tuxpan, and 4-1/2 hrs Tuxpan to Veracruz (bypassing Poza Rica). Those times allow for short snack breaks and gasoline, but you'd need to add a bit if you go into a restaurant for a full meal.
Your mileage (and driving time) may vary, but there's one data point for you.
