Malecon, Veracruz

(4.1/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The walk along the boardwalk in Veracruz, is a very versatile experience, since you can see historic sites such as Faro Carranza and the weapons used in the defense of Veracruz in its huge square; also can buy on the promenade of the crafts and visit some of the traditional restaurants of the port to taste its famous Café.

  • A very nice place for an evening stroll. Stay away from the edge of the pier though if you are not a swimmer.  more »
  • You have many options to eat and buy souvenirs, although the malecon area has great appeal. I recommend eating at "The parish", very good food and good atmosphere with many years of tradition.

  • It is a good place for walking, there are many historical places to see, but is so "tourist area" that is not nice, it is the typical souvenirs.

  • Worth shop around to feel a little harbour life, like children who take coins from the bottom of the water, full of lights, Lighthouse Venustiano Carranza tourist transport and some buildings more than they look different day and night.
