Veracruz, Mexico July 1997. Located on the Gulf of Mexico, the city of Veracruz can be seen in this north-northeast-looking view. Veracruz stands on a low sandy plain surrounded by dunes and swamps, some of which have been reclaimed and are very fertile. Rivaling its northern neighbor Tampico as Mexico's main port, Veracruz is the commercial and industrial center of an important oil region, as well as a major tourist resort with beautiful scenery, fine beaches, and excellent accommodations. Besides oil refineries, Veracruz's industries include cigars, chocolate, liquors, tiles, and footwear. Lake Mandinga Grande is visible to the south (right) of the city. Scattered small islands and coral reefs are visible in the Gulf of Mexico to the east and southeast of the city. Scattered clouds cover the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental in the bottom left portion of the image.
