Mexico is situated in the northern region of the American continent linking the Gulf of Mexico on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west. It is encircled by the United States on the north and by Guatemala and Belize on the south and is divided into six tourist regions. These regions are Northern Mexico, Central Mexico, Southern Mexico, The Yucatan Peninsula, The Pacific Coast and The Baja California Peninsula.
Xalapa is one of the popular tourist destinations of Mexico and the state capital of Veracruz. Located almost 104 kilometers to the west of the Veracruz port, in a mountain zone, Xalapa experiences temperate and humid climate and an average year-round temperature of 18 degree Celsius.
Xalapa is also famous for its eclectic architectural offering including buildings that are a blend of neoclassic, Moorish and neogothic styles. There are also edifices as the Palacio de Gobierno, the Palacio Municipal and the Cathedral.
