I may have to fly into Tampico tomorrow on short notice due to a family emergency. The last time I visited Tampico I was about 20 years old (16 years ago) and my dad did all the driving as he grew up there and knows the city. Can you please let me know where it is safest to rent a hotel? Close to the airport, zona dorada or on the beach? I will be driving a rental car and visiting family member in the hospital. Hopefully you can help.
