Mexico City, the national capital, is situated roughly 160 miles (257 kilometers) to the west of Nautla.
Traveling in this popular part of Mexico is about discovering new things, so why not hit the road and check out a couple of the other fabulous cities, towns and villages dotted around Nautla. Martinez de La Torre, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast, and Tecolutla, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast of Nautla are good places to visit if you're keen on learning more about this region.
For a window into the local culture, head to Veracruz's history museums and art museums. Those with a love of history will adore Veracruz's fortresses, old towns and historic mansions.
Head outdoors and get active in the Nautla area. Try your hand at abseiling or give rock climbing a spin.
Trying the food the locals eat is usually about more than just nutrition. It is a glimpse into places and people's lives. Lime and sometimes vanila are frequently used in dishes here. Huachinango a la veracruzana (veracruz-style red snapper) and huevos tirados (scrambled eggs and beans) are some popular regional treats worth trying.
When the time comes to leave Nautla, you'll be sure to bid this place a fond "Adiós" Rest assured, however, you'll be leaving with photos and memories that you'll be able to enjoy for years to come.
