Your experience


For almost 350 years, the Fort San Juan de Ulúa in Veracruz served as the most important military stronghold of the Spanish Empire in America. Step back in time with a guide on a fascinating return trip from Veracruz and learn more about a historic place that was a colonial fortress, a presidential palace, a prison and much more!

You wouldn't have wanted to be in San Juan de Ulúa 300 years ago. This impressive fortress was originally built with a mortar made of oyster shells, turtle eggs, sand and salt water, but the prison cells contained far more dangerous things.

Immerse yourself in the facts and legends surrounding one of the oldest fortresses in the Gulf of Mexico with a knowledgeable local tour guide. Learn how it is linked to some of the region's greatest historical events and how it went from storing grain to becoming some of the country's most feared prisoners

Look at the salt-covered walls, enjoy the historical atmosphere and be glad that you are allowed to go outside!
