What is the living conditions, Pros and Cons of Tampico, MX? Looking for a place with year round moderate temperatures, plus close to the border. Tampico looks pretty good by the Weather Channel info. Of course, what are all of the other conditions like. I have ridden through the town several years ago and remember a combination of good/orderly locations and some not so good and at times in close proximity to each other. I think that I also saw some Suzuki DL650s being used as police motos. Thanks!


I have been to Tampico a few times and really enjoyed it. All of my tour books said that the beaches were lousy but the dirty little secret is that in the last few years some nice resorts have been built there. Downtown has two vibrant walking shopping areas near each other, and several town squares. It's probably a little warmer there than just "moderate" - when you cross the river you are getting into the coffee and banana plantation areas and it's quite hot in the summer in Veracruz.
