Typical Drinks


A typical drink that you should try when visiting Tuxtepec and the Chinantla region is the Popo. Popo translates as foaming. It is a drink made with cacao, corn, and a vine called Cocolmeca. It is very delicious and refreshing.


Another drink that you should not miss is the pozol. It is made from pozolero corn ground to the metate and piloncillo (panela) is added to sweeten it. It is a filling and typical drink for hot days. When people go to the field to work, instead of carrying their lunch they bring their pozol.
