This is Mexico’s biggest port, a bastion for international trade and the most important economic center on the Gulf of Mexico coast. “Four times heroic”, it resisted four invasions in the 19th and 20th centuries, against the Spanish, French and twice against the United States.
Veracruz was the first city founded by the Spanish on the American continent. Discover the Main Square or Zócalo and have a coffee at Los Portales, a traditional spot. Visit the Malecón boardwalk, which is ideal for strolling while gazing out onto the port’s activity. Discover the Aquarium, one of the Port’s main attractions. The fort of San Juan de Ulúa was key to the founding of the city of Veracruz. Stay within walking distance of all these wonderful sites at the fabulously located Doubletree by Hilton Veracruz Hotel. And you should certainly not miss out on a visit to the famous Café de la Parroquia, a must-see in this beautiful port city.
