Mexico City’s subway system is one of its great secrets. It’s cheap, safer than you might think, and can get you places much faster than traffic-clogged streets. Don't be afraid to take the metro to get where you are going!
Between the urban sophistication of Mexico City and the rumble of the port of Veracruz lies the highland charmer Xalapa, with misty mornings gazing over lush green hills, a thriving art scene, the hip energy of a university crowd, and a café culture that would do Seattle proud.
We are collecting and documenting the largest body of oral histories ever gathered from foreigners living in Mexico. Expats speak out about love, survival, immigration, culture, community and the challenges and joys of cross-border life. We still have thousands of stories we need to record. Contact us if you want to join our volunteer story team to help out.
Veracruz is one of Mexico’s most interesting and exciting states. It offers something for nearly every traveler: white water rafting, museum hopping, pre-Hispanic archaeological sites, sport fishing, great coffee, music, culture, the chance to visit a witch doctor, and, as experienced on a recent visit, some very nice hotels. Here are two worth visiting: Hotel Emporio Veracruz and Hotel Isla Tajin.
