Veracruz is a major port on the Gulf of Mexico, founded in 1519 by the Spanish explorer Hermán Cortés. In 1769 French astronomer Chappe d´Auteroche, on his way to San José, suffered great difficulty in reaching the port by boat, due to extremely heavy stormy weather, a phenomenon typical for this region in the Mexican Gulf.
