    Tajín was the most important totonac city, it is located in the state of Veracruz near the town of Papantla (that's in the east of Mexico folks), wicked cool and quite impressive. Tajín also is the name of a popular brand of powdered chili.

    Quiahuiztlan (Veracruz, Mexico)

    In Mexico`s history, this place was a city with 17,000 inhabitants before the Conquest, and it was in this place where the Spanish first set foot in Mexico more than 500 years ago. Today it is a small village, with fishermen, boats, a few houses, a good restaurant also called Quiahuiztlan and 2 or more miles of beach for yourself and some few more visitors. Even for winter days, it`s a good option for eating seafood, getting a tan (or becoming red if you`re too white), and swimming. Q: Why? A: Because it`s Mexico, and there the winter does not exist.
