    The last InterNations event was just great: I had some very nice chats with fellow expats (even Canadians like me) in Mexico City.

Living in Veracruz

The Mexican city of Veracruz, known officially as Heroica Veracruz, is a Mexican port city of over half a million people, with a rich history and heritage going right back to the first arrival of Europeans in this part of the Americas. Founded by the famous Hernán Cortés, a not uncontroversial Spanish explorer and Conquistador who played a crucial role in the history of the entire continent, this city played its part in replacing the indigenous Aztec Empire with the beginnings of the modern state of Mexico. The city is a beautiful one, with a tropical climate offering expats living in Veracruz delightfully warm dry as well as dramatic, stormy wet seasons. "The Old Port City", as it is sometimes referred to, has enough heritage and architectural merit to last a lifetime for an expatriate living in Veracruz, with the famous San Juan de Ulúa Castle, the last fortress of the Spanish Empire, and Baluarte de Santiago, a section of the city's original wall, particularly worthy of note.

Moving to Veracruz

As a major port city in southern Mexico, Veracruz is easy to get to. The port is still the largest and oldest in Mexico, but generally expatriates moving to Veracruz will find the easiest way into the city to be the General Heriberto Jara International Airport, which flies to a number of international destinations. For more general expatriation information, expats moving to Veracruz can browse the InterNations website. We have a selection of pieces written by other InterNations members, which will give you a good picture of the sort of things to expect as an expat moving to Veracruz. For reliable information and plenty of advice, the Expat Magazine is our online collection of articles on a range of topics, including expat finance and insurance, cross-cultural communication, working abroad and so forth. Together with a welcoming local population and an enticing city, InterNations is here to help you settle into life as an expatriate in Veracruz on the front foot.

Working in Veracruz

The port city's economic and business life is lively and the after-hours scene vibrant. As for things for expats working in Veracruz to see and do, the list is endless. The city's grand Municipal Palace, beautiful central Cathedral of Veracruz, plazas and monuments form a beautiful and stimulating backdrop to life as an expatriate working in Veracruz. Between the cultural experiences and vibrancy of the city, of course, you may want to get in touch with other global minds for some 'time out', and the InterNations website is the easiest way of doing this. Our discussion groups and private messages are a great way to organize meet-ups with the local international community, network or simply get information on the latest things to see and do in the city.

    With InterNations, we had the chance to find a good bi-lingual school for our children in Mexico. They are gonna grow up as true 'third-culture kids'!
