Corner Grocery
textfacade facade

There's nothing that can beat having a corner grocery when you need something. This little grocery story has over 3000 different items on its inventory list. It's a great place to practice Spanish.
Address: Every few blocks you'll find a little grocery store.
hours: Most are open from early morning until late at night.




Neighborhood Pharmacy

The local pharmacy is standard in Veracruz, and pharmacies are everywhere. Most medicines can be bought without a prescription, and most can also be bought in generic form.
Address: These are found every few blocks through out the city
hours: Early morning until late night




Fast Food
textfacade facade

Little three, four, or five table restaurants are all over town. A tasty and filling midday meal costs about three dollars. A rule of thumb is that if the restaurant looks very clean and well cared for, it's probably safe. But, of course, foreigners don't have resistance to local variations of bacteria, and you always have to be very careful.
Address: They're called comida corridas, and there's one to be found every couple of block.
hours: Sometimes as early as eight, but lunch is usually eleven to four




Gran Cafe de la Parroquia

An old city has to have a famous restaurant, and Veracruz does. The Gran Cafe de la Parroquia is known all around the world. If you don't at least have coffee here, no one will really believe you came to Veracruz.

Double Decker Bus

Getting up high so you can see over walls lets you see a lot more about how the City is built and organized. The double decker buses are inexpensive, safe, fun, and give you a look around that you can't get any other way.
Address: mail part of the malecon near the Gran Cafe de la Parroquiz
hours: 10:30 AM until 10:00 PM




Supermarkets
textfacade facade

Veracruz is big enough to have very good, very safe, very clean supermarkets. Walking down some aisles you'll feel like you're back home, but walking others you'll know you're in happy Mexico.
Address: numerous locations around the city
hours: seven in the morning until eleven at night




Shopping Mall (Plaza de las Americas)
textfacade facade

No matter where you go, a mall is a mall is a mall is a mall. But you'll find one difference here. The prices here are higher than back home.
Address: Ruiz Cortinez and Exercito Mexicano
hours: You can walk in through the parking garage and get a McDonald's breakfast as early as 6:30 AM, and the late movie often isn'[t out until after 11:00 PM. Most stores are open eleven to nine.




Professional Soccer

Good, but not the greatest, is probably the best way to characterize Veracruz's pro scoccer team. The Tiburones Rojos, the Red Sharks, make for a fun afternoon or evening surrounded by a very involved and loving it crowd.

hours: check the local paper or on the net for dates and times
