Campeche: a delightful colonial city by the ocean (VIDEO)

679

Located down on Mexico’s great southern nub of the Yucatan Peninsula, Campeche is a delightful coastal city with a truly unique aesthetic.

Originally built to be, for all practical purposes, a stronghold against pirates, the downtown area within the old protective walls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Its colorful streets provide ample opportunities for photography, with plenty of tasty food options along the way.

Just down the highway is Champoton, a pleasant little town where you can get a glimpse of day-to-day life in Yucatan.


Check out the restaurant Pelicanos, which leans into delicious seafood dishes and sits on the bayside boardwalk where you can watch the fishermen at work and buy uniquely coastal handicrafts.
