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 ...

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 ...

... about. I never would have come if I’d actually believed I’d be kidnapped or murdered. Montezuma’s Revenge was another matter....

Once I checked in, I talked to the concierge. He told me, more or less, where to buy water and sunscreen, who had the best tacos, and that he could not help me buy my bus ticket. I’d thought perhaps he could call the station and help me buy the ticket over the phone or online, but he insisted they ...

Mexico City

... 20 degrees and sunny skies. I have no tours planned for today, so I’m going to guide myself. The hotel has a little tourist book which includes the map I’ve been using to get myself around Centro. It also has a list of recommended tourist destinations in walking distance of the hotel. I’ve already visited a few of these, and will check out the rest today.

Dropped my other new shirt and pants to the lavanderia to get planchadoed (that’s not really a ...

    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.
