Malecon, Veracruz

(4.1/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • 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.
