The City You Missed In Mexico: Campeche
Here is a peek around the corner of Calle 57 in Campeche, Mexico. Because it’s not the easiest place to get to, Campeche doesn’t fall on the typical tourist route of the Yucatan Peninsula. There are more Volkswagen beetles here than tourists. You’ll quickly fall in love with its relaxing vibe and welcoming residents. We have spent many blistering summers sweating into the cracks of these Cobblestone streets, walking up and down the “malecon” eating “machacados,” shooting off homemade firecrackers and generally just getting up to no good with our cousins. Maybe some good😉. Interestingly, before being colonised by the Spanish in 1540, a Mayan city existed here called “Can Pech” (hence the city’s current name).
