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. There is an annual LGBTQ+ pride parade.

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

We are also not aware of any gay places in nearby Medellin de Bravo but there is a LGBT+ community there with an annual pride parade.

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

I like saunas that are cruisy but not gay, where there is sex in steam room etc. I like older men and workers, chacales y maduros. Is their a sauna bath house like this in Veracruz?
