The national capital of Mexico City sits approximately 220 miles (354 kilometers) to the south of Altamira.
11 miles (18 kilometers) to the southeast of Altamira you'll come across Tamaulipas Stadium, an exciting place to view a local sporting event. A big part of the buzz is being surrounded by the passionate locals.
Discover more about the general character of the area by seeing the Autonomous University of Tamaulipas and the Huasteca Cultural Museum in Tampico, just 15 miles (24 kilometers) to the south.
One of the best parts of any journey is the pleasure of sampling all the food available. Check out what the locals are eating and dive in!
Typical meals here are usually prepared with quality components, including beans and pork.
A cool way to add to your vacation is to sample the local dishes, like esquites (mexican corn salad) and tamales.
Don't go to local eateries without ordering arroz con leche (rice with milk), a popular local treat.
Relish a pint of Dos Equis, a popular local beer, during your stay in the region. It's the perfect way to enjoy a lazy day on vacation.
Locals and tourists alike often revel in the aroma of the region's trademark beverages, like café de olla (cinnamon coffee).
Get your tastebuds in a state of pure delight and get a much-loved spirit here, a tejuino.
Whether you're into full-bodied, dry wines or fruity tones, it's worth trying out sauvignon blanc or viognier. These regional varieties can be a nice counterpoint to the local dishes.
In most cases, the distinction between being a true traveler and a mere tourist is some understanding of the local language. So, make the effort to learn some basic Spanish. One convenient term is "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" ("Would you like to dance with me?"), which can be understood by almost everyone. Add "Este caballero pagará por todo" ("This gentleman will pay for everything") to your notebook and expand your ability to converse.
Independence Day is a countrywide celebration here. It takes place on the 16th of September, a time when festivities can be heard near and far.
Start packing your bags, say, "Adiós" and choose a souvenir to show your friends back home.
