We will try to communicate in Spanish throughout the tour. First we will meet in a coffee shop to have a delicious Veracruzan coffee and eat something before starting our journey to the Archaeological Center. Then we will use public transportation to Zempoala. We will take a taxi to the Bus Station in the north of the city, then we will board the bus that takes us from Veracruz to Cardel and finally we will take the bus or taxi that leaves us at the Archaeological Center. Being in the Archaeological Center we will be able to visit the museum, walk around the place and have some refreshments. We can also visit the souvenir shop and enjoy a fresh coconut outside the Center. At the end we return to The Port by public transportation. We will finish our adventure eating at a restaurant of your choice in downtown.
I am from Mexico City and I have lived in Veracruz for 10 years. I learned to organize tours and how to teach Spanish when I worked in a school for foreigners. We will enjoy taking tours in the beautiful gardens and pyramids of the Archaeological Center of Zempoala. It is a very quiet place where we can talk and enjoy the scenery. As a native Spanish speaker, I would like to share the culture and history of this magical place, as well as give you the confidence to speak and understand Spanish fluently. You will also learn how to use public transport in and out of the city. (ONLY HOST)
I will bring your favorite snacks even if you have a special diet.
I will pay the entrance to the Archaeological Center.
I will bring a blackboard and markers to draw and explain grammar.
Zempoala was one of the most important cities of the Gulf Coast, capital of the Totonacs. It was a very important place to start the Spanish Conquest. The Center is in very good condition and has very nice gardens. Usually the show of the bird men (Voladores de Papantla) is presented if the weather allows it. There is a museum exhibiting a collection of archaeological pieces found on the site. I will select places to eat according to your diet.
