TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Baluarte Veracruz
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.

Once we were inside the archaeological zone we hurried down the ...
... away kit. Both teams took the game seriously, just as the spectators took their drinking seriously. It was hot enough for us just standing or sitting around looking at birds or bird facts. These players were running around in the heat. We were soon back in the air conditioned comfort of the bus and on our way.
There was more running commentary from our hosts, as the bus passed cheap hotels costing $10 a night, and some "transit" hotels which charged by the hour, aimed ...
... hotels, fine restaurants, and designer shops. It is an easy walk from Polanco back into Chapultepec park where we wander the pathways. It's Sunday and the park is cram-jammed. Families come to enjoy the zoo, water activities, zip lines, and play areas and snack on the hundreds of fast food offerings. (Click on the link for more photos)
... Loads more murials still to see though! Enjoyed a rather nice ice cream sundae in the 16th century Casa de los Azulejos and fulfilled my foreign tintin quotient.
Maries Bug count has broken after a swarm of battered gold and cerise VW taxis zoom past at every intersection. Sadly all late edition fat lighted horrors + I guess for me a cities mentalness will always be measured in terms of India and Mexico City isnt really that bad + plenty of well armed ...
