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 think I must have won close to 10,000 Pesos once I figured out which games I had better odds in. I did not bid for anything but contributed the money ...

... of tortillas and gallons of chilli sauce. Wha'ts funny is that loads of Mariachi bands float around on their own boats and you can hire the band to play serenades and mexican songs as you all float on together. Mexicans are so fun loving. Really amazing !!!!
