Malecon, Veracruz

4.2
Stroll along Malecon, one of the town's most attractive strips, bordered on one side by the harbor. The boardwalk offers sights of some of the town's key architectural sights, as well as the bustle of activity as the boats dock and unload. Feel the replenishing sea breeze as you browse the many stalls selling local handicrafts, ideal as souvenirs. Take a break at one of the restaurants with harbor views, and settle down with some regional cuisine and a cold drink.

  • If you're coming to Veracruz, you can not miss a sunrise on the Boardwalk or failing and highly recommended a sunset, full of restaurants, time and things to see and visit beautiful :D

  • It is always a must-see to walk along the malecon both day and night. See the lighthouse, Harbour, people, their cafes and crafts market.

  • Traditional place for an evening walk to enjoy the cooler air ("tomar el fresco") with plenty to see around the port area plus options for a coffee or ice-cream, or even something much more Mexican; I believe I saw mango dipped in chilli being offered!
  • Cool
  • Beautiful view... Ideal for a family afternoon. Walk. Enjoy the classic and traditional skimming, patés and popcorn...
