More touring around Veracruz: waterfront, beach, and a visit to Boca del Rio, on the outskirts of Veracruz, where we had excellent sea food, and then enjoyed a new treat: “toritos” – a creamy fruit or nut drink that packs a punch!

On the beach is the famous Veracruz Aquarium, a first-rate treat. Lois and I agreed that the only aquarium we recall that is better is the #1 rated Monterrey Bay Aquarium.
