It is fantastic that people still keep these traditions alive. Seemingly simple but a dangerous feat for these men. Even going up the pole would be impossible for most of us much less falling head first slowly to the ground. Costumes are also very colourful and beautifully stitched. Very entertaining. …

I am sure that there are plenty of people who find or would find these voladores fascinating. I am not one of them. Watching a bunch of guys circle a pole is boring.

We watched los Voladores of Papantla three times! Twice outside of El Tajin, and once in Papantla city center. There are several performances per day, and the suggested donation runs from 20 to 50 pesos (higher for foreigners). The performance runs approx. 30 mins. It is good to have binoculars. There is no information given out on the ritual except for what you can find on the internet. A definite must see!…

Seeing the Voladores is an unique experience. You can't miss it if you travel to Veracruz. El Tajin is a majestuous place and is full with history...there's so much to see!

We went to Papantla it was amazing actually breathtaking to see. It was sunny although crowded yet we mesmerised by the Los Voladores.
