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.

We enjoyed the Malecon. It was relaxing with a great positive energy. Our daughters enjoyed running and chasing one another in the big open spaces.

I'm a little surprised by all the positive reviews. The Malecon is worth a visit if you are in town. It is an outdoor market (clothes, trinkets, keychains, etc.). You can also see the fort from the pier, some big barges might be docked there,...More
