Visit the historic towns of Cordoba and Orizaba and discover Mexico's coffee tradition when you take this fascinating tour from Veracruz.
Cordoba and Orizaba Trip
Between 8 and 8:20 am, we will pick you up at your hotel in Veracruz, before heading to the beautiful city of Cordoba.
After driving for about an hour and a half, we will arrive at the so-called "city of the 30 knights". The first stop of the day will be at the fabulous Coffee Museum, where we will learn about the importance of this product in the region and how the production processes have evolved up till the present day.
Then, we will head into the historical center of Cordoba for a guided tour of its most emblematic landmarks such as the town hall, the cathedral and, of course, the Zevallos Gate, where the famous Treaty of Cordoba was signed.
After the visit, you will have an hour of free time for yourself to get some lunch. This is the perfect opportunity to rest and taste the delicious regional gastronomy in one of the local restaurants.
With your stomach full, we'll head for Orizaba where we visit the fantastic Art Museum and the wonderful Iron Palace. If the weather conditions are good, we'll also take a ride on the cable car to admire the impressive views from the summit of Cerro Borrego hill - the perfect finish to our brilliant tour!
The tour ends back at your hotel in Veracruz between 8 pm and 8:20 pm.
