About Poza Rica, Mexico
Poza Rica owes its name to the fact that the area was rich in fish. Petroleum reservoirs were discovered in the area in the early 20th century, becoming the main town of northern Veracruz since then.
Due its geographic location, Poza Rica is the strategic regional tourist stop for travelers who wish to visit the attractions of the Totonaca, Huasteca, and central north areas of the state of Veracruz. Among the most emblematic sights of the region are the archaeological site of El Tajin, the Filobobos River rapids, fishing in Tecolutla, and the gastronomy of Tamiahua, among many others.
***The official currency of Mexico is the Mexican Peso (MXN).
