Nice place to spend some time exploring. Many small shops selling souvenirs and local crafts; foods etc. A nice walk-around the wharf to see the sights of the oldest port in Mexico. The Malecon actually carries on quite a few miles to Boca Del Rio, with many nice waterfront restaurants

Souvenir and food stalls on the end closer to downtown, this place is good for a walk after dinner. It’s crowded and cheerful during Sunday nights.

The Malecón is very nice, if you like to walk this is the place. It’s very long and you can see the ships while you walk. You will be lots of vendors, ice cream, chips, souvenirs, lots. Take lots of pictures.

The Malecon (Spanish for pier) in the port city of Veracruz has a great deal to see and do. You can see the oldest port in North America which is still heavily used today, try local delicacies (such as fresh fruits, tacos, and other tasty foods), and shop in the local shops where local artisans sell their wares. About a block from the Malecon is La Gran Parroquia, the oldest cafe in North America. Still standing in its original location, this coffee shop was opened in 1808, 54 years before the famous Cafe Du Monde opened in New Orleans, Louisiana. Here, you will be served strong coffee in a glass tumbler, to which a Lechero (milkman) will add hot milk by pouring it from high up from a large tea pot. This is served with cinnamon twists which come somewhat dry, because they are meant to be dipped into the coffee. There is often live music here, and the staff are very friendly and attentive. You can purchase bags of their ground coffee for 150 pesos for a 1/2 kilogram bag (about $10CAD). On the pier itself, there are a number of street vendors set up. They will call out to you (if you are Caucasian) "Guera!!" or "Guero!!" which is Spanish slang for white person - not intended to be an insult. You will also be able to see the Naval installation in the form of monuments, buildings, and the presence of Naval soldiers dressed in white uniforms. There are also boys who dive for sea shells and will sell them to you for a couple of pesos each.
