The Port of Veracruz


The Port of Veracruz lies in the Mexican city of the same name on the Gulf of Mexico, just west of the Yucatan Peninsula.  It's the third-largest port in Mexico as well as the largest on its eastern coast.  In 1914, the United States and Mexico fought a mini-war here, during the course of which USA forces fought for and then occupied the city for seven months.  Award-winning contributor Postandfly used a drone to create an amazing aerial view of this important historical seaport, which was founded by the Spanish conquistadors in the early 16th century.
