|Good things to know about Catemaco and Los Tuxtlas
|When to come
Anytime is a good idea. Hottest but dry months are mid April to mid June, rainiest
through February. The weekend of Semana Santa (Easter) turns the Tuxtlas
beaches into a madhouse.
Drive times from Veracruz city are 3-4 hours, Mexico City 7-9 hours. The closest
airports are Veracruz and Minatitlan. About 8 daily first class buses arrive daily
from Veracruz City. Second class buses run 24 hours a day.
|How much does it cost?
80 pesos for a boatride, 50 for Nanciyaga, 5 for the bathrooms, etc.
