    What to Expect
    After pickup from your Veracruz hotel by minivan, head with your guide to the Fort of San Juan de Ulúa, the first stop of the day.

    Set on the water overlooking the Veracruz port, the San Juan de Ulúa complex dates back to 1565 and is one of the oldest fortresses in the Americas. It has played a part in several major events in Mexican history, and today acts as a museum. Explore the fortress with your guide to learn about its history as a prison and presidential residence.

    When you leave San Juan de Ulúa, hop back in the minivan to begin your Veracruz sightseeing tour. This panoramic city tour covers Veracruz’s top sights, including the Old Customs Building, the Edificio de Correos y Telegrafos (Postal and Telegraph buildings), Santiago's Bulwark (defense wall), the train station and the city's 18th-century cathedral.

    Visit the city’s main plaza, the beautiful Zocalo, where locals congregate to play music, chat and watch the world go by in the shadow of the Municipal Palace. Take a walk on the malecón (boardwalk) to enjoy views of the Gulf of Mexico. And enjoy a drive through Boca del Río, a small neighboring port city known for its upscale hotels.

    At the end of your tour, you’ll be returned to your hotel.
