Catemaco and Los Tuxtlas Natural Adventure Day Trip

2 reviews
Venture deep into the great outdoors during this action-packed day trip, which makes it easy to escape the city. You’ll have personalized attention from a private guide as you cover four different stops, from the largest head of the Olmec civilization to a secluded island inhabited by a lively monkey population. You’ll also climb to the top of a stunning waterfall and learn about Mexican biodiversity in an ecological park.

All there is are restaurants. Food was okay. Tour on boat-we did not take because he wanted 500 pesos for the 2 of us. The taxi ride was not worth it.

The location itself is pretty interesting, but I strongly advise people against taking Tours and Tickets to get there. We paid for, and reserved, tickets to go to Mandiga. Were were told to be there at 2:45 for a 3:00 tram ride. After waiting in the tram for 45 minutes, we were then told the bus we are on is NOW going on a historic tour and we would have to take another; this bus drove up and was completley full accept for a few seats upstairs in the sun. I demanded a return of my money and was told no. Later, they then grudgingly agreed. This company is totally unprofessional and not worth the time or your hard earned money. They don't care about you, all they want is your money. Once they get it, watchout!

This is still a pueblito even though it is only a short way off the main hwy on the outskirts of town near the water where they are building new hotels. I had the Robalo (sea bass) a la plancha (grilled) and it was really good. The other choice is Huachinango (red snapper). The people are really friendly. Paid a 3 piece band (they were good) 70 pesos to play la vida no valle nada. Kind of out of the ordinary for Veracruz but everyone knows it. Took the boat (lancha) ride in the lagoon. Glad I went there.

This was a horrible experience! The food was okay. We ate at Restaurante Mandinga on the main land side. We couldn’t get a bite of food in our mouths because we were getting bothered every minute by some new vendor trying to sell something or someone trying to play music. The shrimp tasted like chlorine.

We had a boat ride around the lagoon which was pretty but sadly developement is encroaching so it won´t be for much longer. There are lots of eateries and we enjoyed some spectacular oysters, shrimps and other fresh seafood.
