Campeche

When we were researching our trip and I read about Campeche, I added it to our list as a must see. The region was described as lovely, laid-back, and not too touristy. And the city of Campeche was walled to protect it from pirates. How cool is that? We found a great hotel right inside the walls, next to the land gate. Again, we found the people to be so friendly and welcoming and the walled city so pretty with all the flowers and greenery and the colorful buildings, a little reminiscent of those in old San Juan, Puerto Rico. I can’t express how much I loved the peninsula and Campeche in particular.

These two pictures are actually from inside the hotel. It was several connected buildings with a lush garden and pool in the center.

The first thing we did was visit the bulwarks protecting the land gate. The walls aren’t connected all the way around anymore so we just walked the section around the land gate. Figured we’d do it early since there’s no shade up there.

There are a few of these statues around the city, all representing people going about their business.
