The Malecon is very pretty, mostly a historical Boardwalk. Don't get me wrong it is a must see but does not compare to the other things Veracruz has to offer.

It is entertaining to visit. With all the market shops and the view of the ships. This is good when military ships dock.

This is a very wide sidewalk banked by water on one side and restaurants, hotels and shops on the other. At one end are numerous souvenir shops. Great place to visit on a nice day.

Mexico is not an homogenous country, it has many regions, many faces. Veracruz it's just one of them, and El Malecon is the best way to approach to this rich area.

Their is a joy watching people just hanging out and walking . You will enjoy one of the most traditional things the Veracruzanos enjoy just walking and chatting while enjoying a cool breeze and best of all is free

I have no idea what happened, but when we went this past February, the smell was extremely unpleasant, so we ended up going somewhere else.

The title says it all...tons of gift shops and places to eat. Fun to watch the huge barges with thousands of containers moving around.
