Campeche in Mexico

Campeche is a calm and colorful beachside resort town overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it still retains many of the walls and forts that were built hundreds of years back. Rooted in Mayan culture, swathed in colonial baroque aesthetics, and peppered with tales of buccaneers, Campeche showcases a rich history. Wander around the picture-perfect old town, with the limestone Campeche Cathedral dominating the city’s skyline amid rows of pastel-shaded colonial buildings, and Spanish mansions sporting Juliet balconies. Between various museum excursions, the pedestrianized Calle 59 beckons with its quaint restaurants. One could get used to ambling on the well-preserved cobblestone streets, the breezy seaside promenade, and along the outlying fort’s bulwarks. Spend your evenings people-watching at the Plaza Principal, dotted with carob trees and a rococo-style gazebo as its centerpiece. In Campeche’s new town, find modern street art, bustling craft markets, and the contagious Mexican vibe.
