Following the coast of the Gulf of Mexico north from Veracruz, you reach La Antigua, a maritime and trade centre in the 16C. Nowadays it is a sleepy village that appears to be worn out. But it's still a charming place for a break on the Río Huitzilapan, with a number of restaurants serving delicious fresh seafood.
