The ATMEX (Adventure Tourism Mexico) conference held in September officially opened in Catemaco, Veracruz. The event was attended by much of the top political brass from the state of Veracruz and also Gloria Guevara, Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism at the time. Attendees watched inspirational videos, listened to speeches, dined, smoked local cigars and of course tasted tequila.
Numerous stands or booths also highlighted much of the offerings of Veracruz as we entered the grounds for the event. My favorite was the hand rolled cigars of Veracruz. I definitely took a few as they make good souvenirs. However, none of them made it home since I had a few more nights in Veracruz. Yes, I smoked them.
stay adventurous, Craig
