Description

Get to know Veracruz with a tour that combines local history and culture with a look at the city's colonial-era buildings and natural attractions. Your time exploring the sights gives you an introduction to the grand landmarks that played a unique role in Mexico's history.

Start with a ride from your hotel to the fortress of San Juan de Ulua, which dates back to 1565 and became a symbol of Mexican resistance to foreign attacks. The site gives you an outstanding view of the city's seaport before you move on to visit some of the main attractions in downtown, from the Maritime Customs Building to the old train station.

Next, spend some time at the famous Malecon, a beautiful promenade along the coast lined with shops, restaurants, and cafes. Your last stop along the tour is at booming Boca del Rio. Explore the venerable history of the area, along with its modern hotels and services, before a ride back to your own hotel brings the tour to an end.

Our guide was excellent and knowledgeable...I highly recommend this tour...what madd it so special and enjoyable was that we were the only ones on this tour...it was an eye opener to learn the area had been settled by so many races melding their various cultures and foods. We enjoyed the cuisine so much.
