Veracruz (Spanish pronunciation: [beɾaˈkɾus]), formally Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave ([beɾaˈkɾuz ðe iɣˈnasjo ðe la ˈʎaβe]; Veracruz meaning in English, literally: "True Cross") is one of the 31 states that constitute the United Mexican States. Veracruz is bordered by Tamaulipas to the north, the Gulf to the east, Tabasco to the southeast, Oaxaca and Chiapas to the south and Puebla, Hidalgo, and San Luis Potosi to the west. The population of 7 million is the third largest in Mexico. The state is noted for its mixed ethnic and large indigenous populations. Its cuisine reflects the many cultural influences that have come through the state because of the importance of the port of Veracruz. The capital is Xalapa, and other important cities include Veracruz, Coatzacoalcos, Córdoba and Orizaba.
