We will stay at Casa de las Olas (The House of Waves) which sits on a secluded high bluff overlooking the vast expanse of the Gulf of México. This small family run hotel is sandwiched between two semi-deserted beaches giving us virtually our own private beaches. Las Olas has an on-site restaurant which serves simple but delicious food.

The Los Tuxtlas Region in the Mexican state of Veracruz is located 100 miles south of the historical port city of Veracruz. This is a recognized World Biosphere Area because of the vast amount of tropical trees, plants, animals, and birds which can be found there.

It was said that movie director, Steven Spielberg had considered using this tropical region to film Jurassic Park. Once our local tour guide leads us into this area, we’ll immediately see what Mr. Spielberg saw … a backdrop of mysteriously beautiful volcanic hills draped in a skirt of green color.

FYI: Some areas of this tour will have very little or no internet and cell phone service.

Join us for a true relaxed tropical escape on this 3 day Back Roads of Veracruz Private Tour to explore its southern rural coastal villages.

Tour Itinerary
Pre-Tour Day

Arrive to the city of Veracruz to get ready to meet our local guide the next morning. There are many hotels and airbnbs to choose from in the city. 

DAY 1: Costa de Oro Region of Veracruz / Ocean Boat Ride / Hike Up to a Scenic Overlook

In the morning, our personal host guide will meet us at our accommodations in the city of Veracruz or Boca del Rio.

We’ll then travel a few hours south to a small rural seaside village where our group will board a boat for a ride on the ocean to enjoy the tropical scenery from the sea. We’ll explore a huge sea cave once used by pirates and view tall rocky cliffs. The scenic background of low green rolling hills compliments our view of this beautiful coastline. It’s like a scene out of Jurassic Park. 

We will also disembark and take a hike up a rocky slope to get some fantastic views of the bluffs and the vast Gulf of México. 

Lunch will be right on the beach at one of the small locally owned restaurants. Here we can kick off our shoes and feel the sand between our toes as we eat fresh sea food (other kinds of foods are available too) only steps away from the shimmering blue sea.

In the afternoon, our host guide will take us to check in at the La Casa de las Olas which is located on a high bluff overlooking the Gulf of México. This small 3 floor hotel is locally owned and provides 6 simple clean and comfortable rooms (5 with with 2 double beds and 1 room with 3 double beds).

The rest of the afternoon and evening is free to do as we please. We can go for a swim at one of the nearby beaches, take a stroll along the ocean, or just relax and enjoy the expansive ocean vista below from our hotel. Our private group will sleep here for 2 nights.  (L,D) 

DAY 2: Swim Below Tropical Waterfalls / Zipline Ride / Explore Small Coastal Villages

After a relaxed breakfast at our seaside hotel, we’ll travel down some unpaved roads to check out several hidden tropical waterfalls. The clear pools below are perfect for a swim and enjoying a natural waterfall message. There will be an opportunity to jump into the pool from the cliffs surrounding it. 

A zipline ride in front of one of the waterfalls can give us another angle for some great photos or videos. We will have a relaxed lunch at one of the rustic outdoor restaurants.

Later, we’ll go explore some of the small villages located along the gulf. We will sleep a 2nd night at our hotel overlooking the sea.   (B,L,D) 

DAY 3: Montepio / Beach Time / Banana Boat Ride / Return to Veracruz City

This morning after breakfast we’ll travel to the small seaside town called Montepio. There we can enjoy the beach, swim in the calm ocean water, and maybe find a hammock to take a little siesta under the the shade of a  beach palapa. At some point when everyone is ready, we will take off on a fun banana boat ride into the ocean to ride the waves. 

After lunch,  we’ll head back to our hotel, pick up our luggage, and start our return drive to the port city of Veracruz. Arriving in the late afternoon/early evening, our guide will drop us off at our accommodations in the city of Veracruz or Boca del Rio. We’ll have the rest of the evening to enjoy this tropical historic port city. 

Note: Since our arrival will be later in the day/evening, securing a hotel for the night in the city would be a good idea to do in advance.  (B,L)

Come and join us on this 3 day tropical getaway to this rural coastal region in southern Veracruz.
