Dreamt-of beaches, landscapes of paradise, valuable archaeological compounds and historic monuments, and the cheerful and welcoming spirit of the people of Veracruz, are some of the reasons why Mexico's first port has become one of the favourite destinations for both, national and foreign tourists; the latter coming mainly from the United States.
For this reason, the state has a vast hotel infrastructure with more than one thousand lodges and hotels in its territory; just in the capital, there are 118 establishments with an approximate capacity of 6 thousand rooms; some rather lavish, others quite modest, a bit of everything, according to the taste and economic capacity of their guests.
The urban zone of Veracruz - Boca de Rio, a modern hotel area that extends along the Avila Camacho Boulevard, is located at 10 minutes from the airport and the centre of the state capital.
129 hotels have been raised in here, with approximately 7800 rooms, besides restaurants, shopping malls and even a convention centre.
Every year, between the 1st and 9th of February, hotel managers of the zone offer especial packages for travellers arriving to the famous carnival of Veracruz, a colourful feast in which bad temper is "burned" and people dance the night away.
Besides, the festive program includes a variety of artistic and cultural activities.
If you decide to travel during this festivity, book your reservation with due anticipation for the lodging capacity is rapidly surpassed on these celebration days.
