Top Ten Mexico Off-the-Beaten-Path Adventures

Unleash Adventure in Huasteca

If you like trailblazing, then check out Ciudad Valles—hot spot for nascent adventure tourism, including rock climbing, rafting, mountain biking, and bird-watching. Take up these activities in a region called the Huasteca, which showcases archaeological sites and a distinctive modern culture. Raft the lime-green Tampoan River and rappel next to the Tamul Waterfall. You'll be serenaded with Huapango music and feted with local cuisine, including a giant tamal known as a zacahuil.
