City in Mexico
Tampico is a city and port in the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico; it is located on the north bank of the Pánuco River, about 10 kilometres from the Gulf of Mexico.
Nostalgia can be felt closely in the Port of Tampico as in few other places in Mexico. Warm, friendly and including, the people from Tampico know how to treat visitors, be they immigrants, tourists or just passing through. It is the city where one thousand languages have ceased to exist and where one thousand voices have stuttered their first words in Spanish. It is also a happy, fun-loving city that was built by hard labour and with the richness of the land and the sea, and it has an extraordinary history. Tampico looks especially attractive today, as it has been looked after and rejuvenated by its inhabitants, who are very proud of their city. The archetypal wooden houses and big elegant buildings combine together to form a most unusual Mexican urban landscape. Walking through the Historic Center of Tampico is like walking towards the beginnings of the modern age. But Tampico is not only tradition, its urban development took into consideration, the spaces for recreation and amusement, and visitors can fill the hours doing a lot of really fun things: parks, lakes, archaeological sites, modern bridges and the space reserved for the conservation of nature is limited only by the warm sea of the Gulf of Mexico.
