Getting Here and Around
If you're driving, Carretera 130 from Mexico City leads past Poza Rica to Papantla; from Veracruz City, Carretera 180 leads north to Papantla. If you'd prefer the bus, Papantla's station, on Calle Benito Juárez at Calle 20 de Noviembre, is served only by ADO. There's service half a dozen times a day from Veracruz; the ride takes three to four hours and costs $12, and at least four buses a day to Papantla from Xalapa (3¾ to 4¼ hours, $13).
