You can also go through every corner to discover its history and appreciate its colonial houses.
As we previously mentioned, Xico is reputed to be a Magical Town with a great taste and unmatched seasoning, its specialty is the mole, and it is a true delight for being one of the sweetest since it is prepared with wide chili, chocolate, apple, banana, and cinnamon, mainly. Entered into this topic you should ask for the traditional dish Xonoquei, a broth of beans boiled with the Xonoquei leaves, that is finger-licking good. Moreover, as we mentioned above, the smell of coffee on its streets is characteristic, especially in November when the harvest of coffee beans begins in the city.
This is just a bit of everything wonderful you will find in Xico, Veracruz. Ask the airlines of Mexico if they have a package or ask for the best option to arrive and spend a pleasant trip with your loved ones.
