Boca del Rio initial popularity is due to its beautiful beaches, however there is a lot more to this picturesque town than sun and sandy beaches. Boca del Río is also famous for its delicious coastal cuisine and seafood restaurants.
Over the years the distinctions between Boca del Río and Veracruz city have been eroded by urbanisation and now the two cities flow together connected by the Camacho boulevard that runs along the gulf.
