Jalcomulco is situated 150 miles (241 kilometers) east of Mexico City, the national capital.
Consider using Jalcomulco as a base for further adventures. Veracruz has been blessed with a treasure-trove of great attractions. Take a trip to the State Theatre and Diego Rivera Gallery in Xalapa, approximately 18 miles (29 kilometers) to the southeast of Jalcomulco.
Veracruz, is another good spot to discover. It is around 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Jalcomulco and offers a diverse range of things to do and see, such as Veracruz Institute of Technology, Bastion of Santiago and Veracruz Aquarium. Veracruz Harbour, San Juan de Ulua and Sistema Arrecifal Veracruzano National Marine Park are also worth investigating while you are here.
If the sun is shining, head outside to explore Veracruz's open-air markets, open-air museums and open-air exhibits. This region has been blessed with an interesting spiritual history; learn more at the area's most sacred cathedrals.
A fun way to experience the wild open spaces around Jalcomulco is to join for a rock climbing or mountain climbing tour.
There is no better approach to get the core of the place you are traveling through than trying the regional fare. Two of the region's typical ingredients are lime and vanila. Favorite dishes include huachinango a la veracruzana (veracruz-style red snapper) and huevos tirados (scrambled eggs and beans), but naturally there are many more fine meal options on the menu.
At the end of your time in Jalcomulco, spend the last of your Mexican pesos on last minute keepsakes and bid a fond Adiós (farewell).
