El Tajin and Costa Esmeralda

what great tourist hats!


The second part of our trip involved a 5 1/2 hour road trip to El Tajin, a pre-columbian archeological site and was the site of one of the largest and most important cities of the classic era of mesoamerica. It took forever because of Tope's (large speed bumps) and just the biggest most abundant potholes I have ever seen! But, it was well worth it. I had never seen anything like it.

Then we drove another long hour to the Costa Esmeralda, where we stayed at a quaint little hotel on the beach.






UNO!
