When I think about Campeche, two images come to my mind. The first one is a warm night at the Capital city’s main square with locals playing lottery around the kiosk like in an old and small town. Soft lights on, children playing around, a sense of peace and harmony.
The second one is the amazing tropical jungle surrounding me while I was on the top of Edzna Palace, in the Mayan archaeological site. A sea of green and I fell in love.
Best Mexico Travel Tips
Campeche might be off the tourist radar, but it is an delightful destination. When in Campeche City, take a walk in the morning to enjoy the color of the streets. A visit to Calakmul is a must-visit place, but there are other archaeological sites, such as Edzna, Santa Rosa Xtampak and Hochob. If love nature as much as luxury, stay at Hacienda Uayamon, in the middle of the Campeche jungle. Don’t forget your mosquito repellent (biodegradable, please).
