You can spend here a few days just to relax and walk through the colorful streets and along the sea. The main square is busy, especially on Sunday’s. We liked it very much and stayed two full days.

The historical centre of Campeche is the old walled city, which is now a UNESCO heritage site. There are lots of colourful buildings and cobbled streets. You can easily walk through the historical old town and explore many shops and restaurants.
