About Veracruz and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Veracruz.
Veracruz is a port city near the Gulf of Mexico, in the state of Veracruz, Mexico. The city’s history began in the 16th century, and now the city is home to about five hundred thousand people. Veracruz is a very restrained city with no flashy houses, no painted facades, and no colonial baroque, unlike most Mexican cities. Outside the city center, it is much more like a village; it is famous for its delicious coffee, which is on offer at every turn.
The entertainment of Veracruz is concentrated on the waterfront, where most of the hotels, restaurants are located. Another part is decorated with palm trees and sculptures, sometimes quite unexpected, such as a machine gunner or a diver in a spacesuit. Here is also the oceanarium Acuario, where it is possible to look at the sea creatures in a huge reservoir. Not far from the central square of Zocalo are an ancient castle, two forts, and the Cathedral. Forts San Juan de Ulua and Baluarte de Santiago are opposite each other, both of which now house museums.
In the evenings, the town’s squares are filled with fun, the formal dances of the locals, and the noisy dances of the youth. Clowns walk the streets, people mostly dance in the cafés and squares, drinking tequila, and music pours from everywhere. Every year since the 19th century, there is a carnival in Veracruz, the second most important in all Latin America after the carnival in Rio de Janeiro. For nine days before Ash Wednesday, city residents parade through the streets in colorful costumes, dancing, and competing. Music groups and dance schools from all over the country come together. Spectator stands are set up along the embankment, and the entrance is ticketed. In the finale, they burn an effigy of Coque, the embodiment of all that is bad. And they have fun again.
Not far from the center of Veracruz is a large Veracruz International Airport (VER, MMVR). The airport takes in more than 700,000 passengers a year, it also handles a variety of international and domestic flights, and is also well-equipped for private charter flight customers.
