Veracruz is a major port on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico in central Mexico, in the state of Veracruz (although it is not the state capital). It is located 235 miles east of Mexico City.

There is often confusion between the name of the city and the state, especially when listing a person's place of birth. To alleviate this, the state is sometimes referred to by its full official name (Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave) or as "Estado de Veracruz" in Spanish, and the city as "Puerto de Veracruz" ("the port of Veracruz").
