Our first adventure was to see the Monarch butterflies in Michocan, continuing on to Puebla and surrounding cities. Tour was well planned and we both had researched archeological sites and cities we could visit. We enjoyed it so much we came back a second year (14 days) and visited hot springs, gorge, sites and cities in different parts of Mexico.... More

Thank you Tom & Sonja for your nice review. In thinking about the 3 different trips you have taken with us over the past few years throughout Mexico, I realized you have traveled with us to 14 Mexico states, including the Federal District (Mexico City). Here is the list of all the states you have explored - Michoacan, State of... More

I had the privilege of working with Mike and the other guides of Discover Veracruz on a press trip through the state of Veracruz. I am travel writer and my demographic is the "young, sexy, and broke" backpacker crowd. On this trip, I was looking for an authenticity and adventure, for cheap. At first I was a little skeptical -... More

Brian is a contributing writer for Off Track Planet, a print and online magazine for young travelers. He came to explore Veracruz at a time when we were hosting a small group of folks who really like active outdoor adventures. So Brian really got to travel with us from the seashore to the mountains of western Veracruz to the tropical... More

We have been wanting to visit those wonderful Monarch butterflies for years and were finally able to see them. Veracruz Tours does more than just Veracruz and they put together a trip that included the artist town of San Miguel de Allende, two days at different butterfly reserves and a surprise trip to a charming hot springs resort. We flew... More

As seasoned travelers to Mexico, we were interested in finding something different -- and we found it with Discover Veracruz Tours. Our 6-day customized itinerary took us through the state of Veracruz, including the start of Cortez's route into Mexico, three impressive Prehispanic archeological sites, the Xalapa Anthropology Museum (reputed to be the second best in Mexico), "Magical Towns" of...

We left cold, snowy weather to spend spring break in Veracruz- enjoyed beach time, rainforest jungle time (don't go without the machete equipped guide), got our fill of waterfalls and swimming in their pools, seeing the local sights, mountain views and canyoneering. Mike made sure all the travel, lodging an food was taken care of, tailoring the trip to our... More

We spent 10 days with Mike as we toured Veracruz's Mountains and Coast. Mike and his staff, Jorge, did a great job making sure we were well fed and well adventured! Rafting, ziplining, hiking, and more! It was cool to see the fisherman on the beach catch a huge net of fish. Thanks Mike for a great Spring Break!

I loved the fact that the places our guide took us in Veracruz were not “touristy.” On one of the days of my trip, our small group went hiking in the tropical jungle and we were the only ones there. The jungle surrounded us and that was really cool. Also, having gone to cooking school, I was especially interested in... More

Last fall I had the chance to visit Veracruz, a very little known area of Mexico...the forgotten Mexico! To my delight this was one of my best experience ever. Not the luxury resorts and beach vacation but totally unique, different and wonderful. From the moment we met up with our guides Mike V and Jorge we knew we were in... More

We luckily found Mike and Discover Veracruz Tours as we had chosen that area to vacation but knew nothing about it. What a wonderful trip! Some of the accommodations we made on our own, and some Mike helped us with. We did three separate phases, which Mike helped to coordinate for us. First, from the city of Veracruz (which was...

If you truly want to experience something more than sitting on a beach, this is the way to go. From your first meet and greet with the staff from Discover Veracruz you will feel like family. You will have the opportunity to go white water rafting, zip-lining through the trees, ATV tours on sand dunes. You will see monkeys and... More
