Altamira Vacation Packages

Altamira, a rather distant destination without major cities nearby, is located 220 miles (354 kilometers) to the north of Mexico City, the country's capital.

Tourists vacationing in this region only have to go 11 miles (18 kilometers) southeast of Altamira to enjoy live sports at Tamaulipas Stadium. Munch on some snacks, meet a few local people and yell and cheer until you simply can't anymore.

Take a drive to Miramar, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) to the southeast of Altamira. Here, you can visit Autonomous University of Tamaulipas and Plaza Herradura Shopping Center. We also suggest going to Ciudad Madero. Church of St. John Bosco and Huasteca Cultural Museum are likely to capture your imagination while you're there.

If you really are not one to take time off just to unwind, you'll be pleased to know that Tamaulipas offers an array of outdoor activities, like mountain biking and rock climbing.

If you're looking for a little downtime, the region also offers some peaceful pastimes, including cycling and shore fishing.

Come and hang out at the swimming and snorkeling sites in Tamaulipas. It's an opportunity to let the mundane wash away while having a great time.

Discover a different side of Tamaulipas when you visit the history museums and theaters in the region.

Spending some time in this region and seeking out somewhere to enjoy the outdoors? Then head over to the excellent gardens.

Would you like to gain some insight into the region's history? Set aside time to visit the old towns.

Experiencing the local churches and cathedrals offers a different view of the region.

Traveling opens your eyes and your taste buds to a vast range of regional flavors. Dive into the culinary traditions of Tamaulipas by heading to a few of the local restaurants.

Don't miss the opportunity to discover the flavors and spices of the region's authentic cuisine, including cabrito en sangre (goat in blood) and acamayas (fresh water prawns).

More often than not, the difference between a traveler and a tourist is a little knowledge of the local dialect. So, make the effort to wrap your tongue around some practical Spanish phrases. A great example of a handy Spanish expression is Buenos días (good morning). Add ¡Buena suerte! (good luck) to your repertoire and increase your conversational ability.

It's time to celebrate! Observing Independence Day on the 16th of September is a great way to understand the spirit of the region.

Spend your leftover Mexican pesos on a few souvenirs, and say, "Hasta la vista" to Altamira.

Visitors flying to Altamira must be aware that the nearest major airport is General Francisco Javier Mina International Airport, which is 10 miles (16 kilometers) away.
