In Xalapa, the capital of the state, we will begin the tour by visiting the former treasury El Lencero, among large coffee plantations and beautiful gardens, on the shore of a lake where you will appreciate delicate vintage furniture, antique objects, and some belongings from Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana, former president of Mexico who lived and enjoyed this beautiful house. Its first owner was a soldier of Hernan Cortes named Juan Lencero. After this visit, you will enjoy a panoramic tour of the most interesting places in this city, such as the Government Palace, the Cathedral, the University Zone, Paseo de los Lagos, and Juarez Park.

Then, we will go to Xico–a magical world of ancient traditions and legends that are surrounded by green hills and mountains at 2,800 meters above sea level. We will get to know the Parish of María Magdalena from the 16th century, with a neoclassical style façade, the Patio de las Palomas (Pigeons’ Patio) where a collection of more than 400 beautifully embroidered elegant dresses of the patron saint Magdalena of Xico is exhibited. If you take this activity in the month of July, you will find its facades and streets decorated for these patron saint festivities. Walk through its cobbled streets and enjoy the exquisite food, and the famous mole xiqueño of the region, too. Following our journey, we will arrive at the Cascada de Texolo (Texolo Falls), a place of exuberant natural beauty in the area, as well as pass through coffee plantations and coffee farms. Suggestions for eating are given here.

 Then, we will go to Coatepec, known for its high-altitude coffee being at 1,250 meters above sea level. We will visit the square of the crafts and orchids of the region, then we will go to the interactive museum of coffee for tasting, we will know the different types of coffee as well as enter the plantations considering the harvest season (Oct-Nov-Dec-Jan, and part of February) and enjoy the picturesque surroundings of this beautiful place, savoring an exquisite cup of coffee.
