Tampico went through a rough spot a few months ago. If you come, have contacts, a plan of what you want to do and follow what you contacts advise.

You should absolutely go. As a foreigner visiting, you won't have any issues. Just pay attention to what the locals say and do and DO NOT go bar hopping at night, or driving around late. Keep the festivities where you are staying and you'll have a good time. Never found Tampico all that interesting (At least not compared to Veracruz), but it happens to be where Fidel and Che departed from to begin the revolution in Cuba. Enjoy!

I have heared a lot lot of ugly stuff about Tampico, but most of this is exagerated I think. I have been in Tampico round about 12 month ago and had no problems. You will see that streets get really empty after 8 pm. Make sure that you are not alone on the street after 9-10 pm and you will be fine.

Now a days Tampico's life is greater than years ago, the insecurity almost disappear but it's a fact that you must not walk alone in the night. People end up loving their visit to this port city. On the other hand if you come you should get away and visit our historical downtown. Perhaps the most difficult thing to get through is its boiling weather. For whatever reason you visit Tampico City I dare to say you would enjoy the time here. In my experience, my father came just to work here and it turned out loving the city and moving.
