Mexico City, the capital of Mexico, is about 80 miles (129 kilometers) to the west of Huamantla.
It's hardly surprising Huamantla is a perennial favourite with travelers; the surrounding region is dotted with wonderful sights and attractions. Tlaxcala and Totolac are two more places worth visiting while you're in Tlaxcala.
Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southwest of Huamantla is Puebla, an important regional center home to Guardian Angel, El Parian Market and Cuauhtemoc Stadium. Africam Safari, Angelopolis Mall and Zocalo Square are also good places to spend a little time.
If you ask residents their favorite spots around Huamantla, you'll often be advised to check out the region's ever-popular street art. Tlaxcala is blessed with some beautiful cathedrals, sure to impress all visitors regardless of color, culture or creed.
Tlaxcala offers plenty of activities for visitors who enjoy watersports. Sailing and canoeing are just two of the popular choices here. Get a new perspective of Tlaxcala by taking to the skies. Hot air ballooning is a great way to spend a few hours here.
There's no nicer method to get to the heart of an area than sampling the food from the region. Don't end your stay in the area without sampling chinicuiles (red worms) and tlacoyos (beans and cheese on thick tortillas).
When the time comes to head back to the familiarity of home, you'll be bidding this special place a sad Adiós (farewell).
