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 …

This is a top pick!

... strip and when you walk down onto the beach there is tables and chairs with sun umbrellas for you to sit and the restaurant workers bring you drinks. A man named Nic, who spoke pretty food English coaxed us into drinking at his area of tables, so we sat and drank a few cocktails and beers for a few hours and watched the locals enjoying the water and beach. As usual lots of people come up and try to sell you things or play you music, at one point ...

6. My imagination is a scarier place than Mexico

... we walked through a metal detector and our bags were x-rayed.

The gate did not lead to just one bus but to five slots. And since I didn’t know the ultimate destination of the bus I needed, I didn’t know which one of the four idling there was mine.

I approached the nearest bus, the one on the far right, and showed the driver my ticket. He waved me to the left, but I didn’t understand his Spanish. The destination sign on the next bus to ...

... block I still hadn’t found it and started stopping locals at random to ask if they knew where it was. Everyone seemed confident that they did, but they all pointed me in different directions. I found it eventually about a block east of where the map shows it to be.

Worth the effort, if only to see the interior of the building which is magnificent. There are no roulette wheels as the name suggests – casino is actually a Castilian word meaning "social club" which ...

... which fortifications
such as Fort San Juan de Ula were built. In the 19th century, Veracruz
saw a number of invasions, mostly by France and the United States with
the last invasion in 1914. For much of the 20th century, the production of petroleum was more important for the state,
but in the latter twentieth century and into the twenty-first, the port

    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.
