We're heading to Veracruz for a long weekend the first weekend in February. We live in Mexico and speak fluent Spanish. We'll have two nights/three days there. We're flying into Veracruz, Veracruz, but we're not set on staying in the actual city. We like culture and ruins, but one of the girls is really hoping for some beach time. It sounds like there is enough to do in the City itself, but are there other areas that anyone would recommend that might be a bit more quieter than the city itself, that offers beaches? Thanks!
