Planning a trip with some friends to Veracruz between Dec 19 and Jan 11. Two or three weeks long.

Looking for some tips. Shuttles, camping, cartel activity, etc...

Any info would be great!

If you are flying down around Christmas ,you better get tickets asap because travel in Mexico is a [email protected]$% at that time ...even buses from DF to Veracruz could be full...if shit is too high ,Ja!comulco is fairly close ( closer to Mex City and Veracruz city) and has all the boating amenities and is on a 3-4 river ( Barranca Grande high V-?) that would be more challenging crankin'..with 3 weeks you could hit Valles ,well established for boating or Teapa ,boating hub in it,'s infancy /pretty much on your own, but has 3 rivers ...mostly easy near town but great variety upriver including committing V canyons and roadside 3/4(5).....many other options relatively close...

Thanks, David. Good pointers. Sweet pictures too.

We're planning on driving down.

Did a quick google search on gang violence in Tampico. Results said gang activity is high...

How accurate is that? Is there a way to avoid driving through the city if necessary?

We cruzed down the emerald coast right thru Tampico with that route. Many options on ways to roll down there depending upon if you go to S.L.P. To hut the micros/verde or not. Stay on the freeways and don't drive at night!
