“The big door of the Huasteca” awaits you to discover it this vacation.
Ciudad Valles was founded in 1533 and is the second most important city in the state due to its significant economic activity as a center of commerce in the region.
But the city offers many other benefits for its visitors. First, it is a central area to practice adventure tourism and is known as “the big door of the Huasteca”, that is, it enjoys countless natural attractions. Second, its annual temperature is always hot, so the weather is perfect for vacationing. And third, its gastronomy, here you can savor typical dishes like crazy broth or bocoles, as well as the traditional zacahuil, which is its version of a tamale, and its jobito wine, among other fermented drinks.
As for lodging, Ciudad Valles offers options for all budgets and styles, so that will not be a limitation.
If you are looking for handicrafts, you should visit the center of Ciudad Valles where the Teenek and Nahua natives are located, who elaborate pieces carved in wood and mold mud, as well as their beautiful fabrics in tablecloths and blouses.
And since you are in this area, you should eat in one of its restaurants such as El Vaquero tacos, or the seafood of 7 Mares, with dishes like acamayas or catán posts.
As for the attractions it offers, there is the Hidalgo Garden and its Alameda, as well as its Luis Donaldo Colosio Park, from where you can see the river Valles. For those who like culture and museums, there is the Parish of Santiago Apóstol dating from the 16th century, or the Tamuantzan Museum within the Cultural Center of the same name, where objects from the archeological zones of Tamohi and Tamtoc are exhibited. Another must-see is the Huasteco Joaquín Meade Regional Museum, which houses about 8,000 archaeological pieces including musical instruments, artifacts and ceramics.
One more option for entertainment is to make a getaway during the morning to Los Sabinos Grottoes, located in the Biosphere Reserve of the Sierra Abra Tanchipa, where you can also perform exciting adventure activities.
