Peerless Gulf of Mexico scenery, beautiful beaches, and colonial buildings draw visitors to Campeche in their droves.
A World Heritage city, Campeche is a fortified city, its walled bastions built to protect the town from the ravages of pirates in the 17th century.
The best way to discover Campeche is on foot, with a stroll through the various barrios, along cobbled streets linking tranquil neighborhood squares, churches, and the town’s distinctive pastel-hued houses.
The waterfront stretch along the malecon is particularly popular for strolls, with installations of public art providing additional distractions. Taking a walk along the city’s fortified stretch of walls at sunset is another highlight.
Campeche has several forts, good museums with Mayan and colonial collections, and a cathedral dating to the mid-16th century.
