Campeche has a beautifully preserved and historic old town, a culinary pedigree that stretches back hundreds of years and it is located close to white-sand beaches and ancient Mayan ruins. So, it’s difficult to say why the harbour town doesn’t enjoy the reputation of some of the cities further along the Yucatan peninsula such as Merida, Cancun or Tulum. But the deserted feeling within the old town, without tourists or the things that might lure them here, suggest that perhaps Campeche doesn’t really want that reputation. And that’s understandable. Find out everything you need to know to explore Campeche before it becomes the next big thing on the Yucatan.
