The pride march in Veracruz, starts in the historic center and continues to Boca del Rio

The city of Veracruz has a much bigger gay scene than you might expect

Esa página está disponible también en español.

The largest city of Veracruz state, Heroica Veracruz (though usually just referred to as Veracruz) has a thriving gay scene with many bars and discos.

The nearby beach resort of Boca del Río doesn't currently have a gay bar but is popular with LGBT travelers nonetheless.

For other places in Veracruz state including the state capital Xalapa and the city of Coatzacoalcos, please see the Veracruz state page.
