Getting sun on the Gulf Coast

I visited the Northern part of Veracruz state last Christmas and discovered Villa Rica, a little-known and maddeningly-difficult spot to find. It's not the most pristine place - Veracruz beaches are understandably not famous - but Villa Rica, with its nearby Totonac ruins and sprinkling of inns, makes a pleasant place to stop for a day.
