Cheap flights to Veracruz >>> Price list & availability

The city of Veracruz is a major port city and municipality on the Gulf of Mexico. Hernán Cortés arrived to Mexico here in 1519, founding the city with the name of Villa Rica de Vera Cruz. Veracruz’s status as a port has made the city a blend of cultures, mostly indigenous, Spanish and Afro-Cuban. The influence of these three is best seen in the food and music of the area, which has strong Spanish, Caribbean and African influences. General Heriberto Jara International Airport is located 13 km from the city.
