Veracruz is the oldest port in the country and it is defined by its history, traditions, joyful people and delicious food. 


Go directly to Los Portales, a traditional area known for its many restaurants. Sit down in one of them, listen to the lively rhythm of marimba, have a coffee and watch the people pass by. 

Also, make sure to visit the Catedral de la Asuncion de Veracruz; a beautiful white Neoclassical building with an impressive dome, so splendorous it will make you fall in love with it.


Explore the streets while enjoying the relaxing weather, enormous swaying palm trees and colorful plants. Enjoy a refreshing ice cream cone while you take in the local scene. You will see children playing, cheerful elders telling stories of their early life, beautiful ladies walking out of church and animated jarochos that appear to dance while walking. Become a part of this scenario and live it to the fullest.


On Sunday, make sure you dance a danzon at the Plazuela de la Campana. There you will see couples showing off their best moves every Sunday evening, letting music take control of their bodies. Come and feel the music while being with the jarochos, who presume to have a very good rhythm, and certainly will spread their joy with you.
