Barra de Cazones (Cazones Coastal Bar)

Poza Rica

It must be said: Poza Rica doesn’t have a beach. However, the closest one is just 20 minutes away: Barra de Cazones beach, where the same name river and the Gulf of Mexico meet. Here’s a fishing village; locals offer tours to snorkel or dive in the reef.

At the foot of the beach, there are enramadas to eat ceviche and zacahuil tamal made with beef, pork and chicken bathed in red chili sauce. Hammocks and lounge chairs are also rented. In October, all tourists are invited to participate in the release of hawksbill, olive ridley, white and green turtles.

At the mouth of the river there are boat rides to enter the mangroves and observe birds from Canada and the United States.
