    My husband and I will be staying at Villa del Palmar Flamingos 12/7-14. We are interested in seeing Los Voladores de Papantla on the Malecon. Can you tell us when they perform.
    We also would like to watch the processions for la Nuestra Dama de Guadalupe. Any tips on viewing, etc. would be appreciated.
    Muchas Gracias.
