City of Veracruz
The port’s magic is palpable as soon as you arrive: the air carries the sound of melodic son jarocho chords and the scent of tobacco, coffee, and torito (a popular drink in Veracruz). Under the main square’s colonnades, you will find the marimba and its regular patrons. In its center, the elegance and sensuality of danzón. Its buildings and squares are steeped in the past, and so is the warmth of its people and its traditions, which are shown in their best light during the Carnival season.
