Recharging in colonial Veracruz

A travel blog entry by rona.puntawe


I arrived around 9:30AM. Somehow I was thinking I'll get here around 6AM. Of course, it's a 15-hour bus trip. I must have had a good sleep in the bus as it didn't feel like that long.

Hotel Baluarte. I finally stayed in a real, nice hotel. Feels like being back to civilization. The reception was nice enough to allow me to check-in early …

Day - 45 Veracruz Aquarium

This is a top pick!

... you need to spend money, so we did. We got a couple of beers and I went out and tried the water. As usual it was sweltering hot in Veracruz, and as I got in the water I expected to cool off, but the water temp is about the same as the outside temp, it's like a nice warm bath. I swam around on and off between drinking beers while Bobbie sat in the sun and tanned. It was a really good afternoon, I was happy I got in the water before leaving because it was a good ...

Departure Day

A travel blog entry by rachelniewiada


Today is the day I feared would come all too soon. And it has. Much too soon. Departure day is here and I am not sure I have been more sad in my entire life. Honestly. This is one of the hardest days I have ever faced. No, I haven't cried, but tears have accumulated in my eyes more
times than I want to admit. And they might have possibly fallen, but I'm saving the full blown storm for home.

Everyone on the trip contributed ...

Veracruz : Staying with Hosts

... was only a few minutes drive away. His mother, Angeles, was already waiting for us with lunch ready. Another good sign! Muy amable los dos! I immediately felt comfortable and at home. They have a big almost colonial style like house. The external walls are all ceramic tiles. The floor were also all tiles with neat design. The furnishing was also like antique – it's like stepping back in the 1950s ...

... 4 lanes at 1236. At 1239 there was the cry of 'railroad!' [three tracks no less] by guess guess. Corn and sugar cane is the predominant produce, potatoes and peanuts also around. 1300 school must be out. 1306 2k from Los Mochis, the Bienvenidos sign seen at 1309. Different things seen along Av. G. Leyva included a Scotiabank branch and a couple of Japanese restaurants. At El Farallon restaurant after 1323. The food was very good--shrimp sauteed in ...

    Hotel Baluarte is just a few blocks away from the sea and the zocalo, both within few minutes walking distance. Gran Cafe de la Parroquia, an institution in Veracruz, is also nearby. The pool is quite small, but it's good enough to take a dip in to cool off from the scorching heat of Veracruz. Very neat and tidy hotel. The receptionists don't speak English and they really couldn't help much in suggestingw hat places to see -- but I realised, it's the same elsewhere even in 4/5-star hotels in the city.
