Explore the ruins of a formidable city at El Tajin, an archaeological complex and World Heritage Site.

The height of its powers, between 600 and 1200 CE, saw the construction of the majority of the temples, palaces, and pyramids. Admire the artistry of the carvings on the main temple, showcasing decorative techniques unseen in other contemporary cultures in the region.

The site is very well preserved, although not so the site museum, which looks dated, poorly maintained and with very poor information. The restaurant serves a basic meal but very suitable to taste after the visit.

Go ready to walk, finishing the tour adqueire some of the crafts that sell on the site, from there I suggest you eat rich in papantla, go to the museum live in the garden with squirrels and obviously do not miss the flyers of scarecrow, its great church of the place.
