The actual Papantla Flyers show and the performers seem honest and trying to put on a nice show. They are dressed colorfully and dance and climb a tall pole and slide down and play music. There was also a rodeo-type lariat act by a young man who was very good. The amphitheater they have built and the stage are clean... More

The community of Stone Island is typical of middle and lower class Mexican families. Only Mexican citizens are allowed to purchase there. We arrived by ferry and taxi to a beach-side cafe, and entered the beach... More

The Highlights of the city are better seen on your own - take a walking tour or hire a cab to take you to some of the nicer spots -- I'd recommend along the waterfront area. But this tour was more tourist trap than touring. The worst part was the "theater" they take you to for the Papantla Flyers. After... More
