Malecon, Veracruz

(750+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Malecon and many more Veracruz attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Veracruz itinerary maker.

  • 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!
  • Lugar muy bonito para caminar y disfrutar del puerto.
  • Cool
  • It is a nice place with good atmosphere, perfect family. There is a magnificent view of the boats that arrive at the port, there is a guided tour on a boat where you are to know some beaches in the area and part of the port, there is also a tour in a bus tour through the main points of the city, the prices are economic $100 and $50 respectively. The place has an area of crafts and you can not leave the area without visiting the parish coffee and the famous snows of the güero guero. The socket is located close to this place.
