Is it safe to travel to Veracruz? family friendly?
Is your trip limited to the port city of Veracruz? Or will you be traveling elsewhere. When is the trip? Are you traveling by yourself, or with others ... and are you visiting people who are living there?
Next year around spring. I will be traveling with my husband and daughter (7). We will be visiting people that live there in Cuitláhuac
The closest large city to Cuitláhuac is Cordoba. I have no personal knowledge/experience with which I could offer an opinion on your question. I did a search using Google News and typical types of crimes for communities of that size showed up (nothing extraordinary that I saw). The best source of information will come from the people you will visit with and you might want to check with them a month or two before you visit to learn of current events.
