Reviews of Campeche

Campeche is located 196 km from Mérida and is the only fortified city in the whole of Mexico. It constitutes a good place in which to spend a peaceful, relaxing break on the Yucatán Peninsula.

My suggestion:
As in most towns and cities in Mexico, the museums in Campeche are closed on Mondays. Plan to do something else that day instead.
My review
Campeche is perhaps not one of the first cities you think of going to visit on a trip to Mexico. It's a shame this is the case, and it's something that needs to change as it really is a wonderful place. Campeche is in fact inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage.

A lovely town in the south of Mexico.

My suggestion:
Why not find out more about Campeche's night life - it's very lively!
My review
Campeche is a charming colonial town in the region of Campeche, which neighbors Yucatan, in the south of Mexico. I love wandering round its many narrow cobbled streets, admiring the multi-colored facades of the old colonial buildings and the colonnaded terraces in faded colors.
