Page 2 -- Tour of Veracruz
Our hotel room looked out on the plaza and the Port of Veracruz, one of the busiest ports on Mexico's east coast.
It was our first full day in Veracruz! Ever the slaves to Lonely Planet, we set off to see the sights.
The rooftop pool of our hotel. Veracruz is a popular destination for Mexican tourists.
Hotel lobby. Day of the Dead displays were set up everywhere.
This classic 30's photo of Veracruz shows the plaza back when your could still drive around it.
We had a coffee in one of the plaza-side cafes.
These Dia de los Muertos buses were popular. Note the figures of the dead people along with the tourists.
