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.

I am 6 hours behind UK time, so I'm just dealing with some jetlag right night, before heading downstairs for a breakfast buffet (my weakness in life,) and then meeting Lilliana, from the Anglo Foundation at 10 for our induction.
... in just over an hour. It is a bird observatory, but not what I had in mind, meaning hidden in some secluded forest or overlooking a wide expanse of water. Instead it was located right beside a soccer field with a game in full swing, complete with spectators downing Corona's, concession stands and loud music. It turned out that the observatory was more for raptors for whom thermals and air currents are more important than silence and seclusion.

... are three main areas of the site, the Ciudadela, the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon. The views from the top of the Pyramids where amazing especially from the Pyramid of the Moon which gave a fantastic view of the Avenue of the Dead. After visiting the museum, we bumped into Kleysson and Maria enjoying some lunch having just got there. So we said hi and then made our way back to the bus stop to return back to the city. At the bus stop were 3 Australians ...
