Where to Go / What to Do in Xalapa

Once inside the city, a vigorous walk on the jetty separating it from the Sierra River is almost obligatory, for later enjoying a delicious ice cream while sitting on a bench of the Central Park, axis of family and romantic afternoons for the people of Xalapa. MUSEO DE ANTROPOLOGÍA One of the best anthropology museums in Latin America, the Museo de Antropología de Xalapa hosts the country’s largest collection of pre-Columbian objects. More than 3 thousand years of history are preserved inside its walls for telling the history of the Olmeca, Maya and Huasteca ethnic groups.
