When you leave from your hotel, you’ll first see the malecón, or boarwalk, that stretches for kilometers along the Gulf of Mexico. During the tour, your guide will provide commentary about all of the sites on the itinerary. Without stops, you’ll see the Island of Sacrifices, the Pemex Tower, the Monument to Sailors, and the Carranza statue.
A highlight of the tour is Fort of San Juan de Ulúa, a great fortress that was constructed for the defense of the port of Veracruz. It has also served as a prison.
