Yes, leaving in just a few days to go to the state of Veracruz. I've been doing my research and have lots of great food ideas. But would welcome any last-minute advice you might have!

    Umm.....can you pack me in your suitcase ;-D.

    Try the coffee in Veracruz city, the Xico mole (in the little town of Xico), visit Rachel Torres' churraria (sp?) for cena in Xalapa, have a great time and report back how your trip was and what you found!

      Veracruz can't miss:

      > Red Snapper Veracruzano
      > Xanath Papantla (Shrimp in Vanilla Sauce)
      > Ceviche in Coconut
      > Zacahuil Tamales
      > Cafe Lechero

      > Vanilla plantations in Papantla, as well as many of the most impressive orchid gardens in the Western Hemisphere.

      > Coffee Plantations around Coatepec (a town that was designated as a Magical Pueblo by Mexico's domestic tourism program)

        There are also some interesting distilled fruit liqueurs made in or near Xico.
