And where did you hear that about taxi drivers? From someone wha has been to Mexico recently?
I expect Uber is available in Veracruz, but recent news stories indicate that it isn’t necessarily safer than any other form of transport. Long distance first class buses verge on the luxurious and are very comfortable. City buses are less easy to use unless you speak Spanish and know where you want to go.Edited: 17 January 2018, 13:34
Not true, typical, histrionic gringo B.S.
back in the 90s there was a problem where some corrupt police and taxi drivers would do bad things. now all legitimate taxi drivers have official documentation and laminates. use official taxis.
I am glad Dynamisto and Londinese that you are rational as I am. I have never had taxi or safety issues in Mexico including Veracruz state and city, taxis, bus whatever. Who on earth makes up these stories, its very sick and I fear goes way way back to the s-hole brains of some people. I am a US citizen and Mexico permanent resident and find these attitudes and even questions repugnant. I have travelled in Veracruz maybe 5 times over the past 8 years for work projects and fun, in the city I think you get the best seafood in MX. Plus its a really nice Caribbean flavour city with danzón & salsa in the center and music all over.
Sorry poster, its just not true lots that you hear. Its like dirty nasty rumors. Use your head. Don´t wander around drunk. Don´t take or buy drugs in Mexico - or elsewhere really. Stay in legit places, take official taxis.. The world is a pretty nice place to those of us who are polite and interested.
Well thats great to hear!!! A person hears these things and starts to believe them when you dont know any better. Very informative and very much appreciated!!!
I was just in Veracruz last week. I actually walked out of the airport to the entrance and grabbed a bus to downtown centro. It was easy. Then when I left I returned by bus and walking in as well. I used buses around town or walked. Did not use cabs but use them elsewhere in Mexico. Do not know about Uber as I dont use it.
Dont worry. the main bus station ADO (or the one behind that one for more local routes) will get you to other cities.
I waited 10 minutes for bus to Xalapa. They go every 15 minutes. Go to Xalapa if you can. the museum there is world class and the city is wonderful.
Lots of history in Veracruz. Go to the fort and the naval museum and the city museum. There is a tranvia to get to the fort. no need for taxi.
Yes Monteverdeguy - http://www.xalapa.net/antropologia/ I actually prefer this to the CDMX Anthropology just because of the setting and its less overwhelming.
Have the big shrimp in the dark chile salsa, mmmmmmm, any seafood cocktails, fish a la veracruzano -- and of course café at the Parroquia where you bang your glass for hot milk, its a symphony - wow mega hungry thinking of Veracruz.
