Zona Arquelogica Edzna

Reviewed By 73Duck - Smithfield, VA

We were staying at Hacienda Uayamon nearby, so coming here was a no-brainer. Easy to find and relatively compact in a neat, well-groomed park-like setting. Not as impressive as places like Uxmal, Ek Balam, or Chichen Itza, but still worth the trip if visiting Campeche.

Site Maya de Dzibilnocac Dans le Yucatan

Reviewed By Tim B - Edinburg, Texas

Although this site is generally not rated very highly, I thought Dzibilnocac is equally worth visiting as Hochob (for example). The stonework, size and layout of the main building is fairly impressive, and for me its location at the edge of a town added to its interest

El Palacio Centro Cultural

Reviewed By Finaxis - Mexico City

I've been to many museums, and this particularly, is great.
Great exhibits in English and spanish, the muséographie is very well done.
The building itself is magnificent.
And its free!!!!
Try to book the guided tour, also free, to have access to the interactive rooms.
Also a great experience

Centro Historico de San Francisco de Campeche

Reviewed By viajePALZ - Bethel Park, Pennsylvania

People watching, shoe shine, great WiFi to communicate with those unfortunates who were unable to visit the beautiful city of Campeche, buy a coffee at Oxxo or Italian Coffee Company and and listen to the birds at sunrise or sunset.....or stop by for the free nightly entertainment! We had a light show, trove group of 9 guitarists, and a marimba band! Friendly locals willing to offer suggestions on things to do make for a wonderful visit.

Old City Wall

Reviewed By 73Duck - Smithfield, VA

The city of Campeche has done a commendable job of restoring and maintaining the remnants of its old city walls. Like so many other walled cities, especially in Europe, many parts of the walls were demolished to make way for trollies, new streets, or to make room for development, i.e., more housing or commercial edifices. What remains in Campeche is still pretty impressive, though. Well worth a look.

Catedral de Campeche

Reviewed By cassiesmummy - San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

we were a little less impressed with the Cathedral than others as we have been spoiled by those in europe, south america etc. this one was a touch plain though the chandeliers were not something i was used to and they made it a bit interesting

Zona arqueologica de Calakmul

Reviewed By Tope_Law - Idaho

We enjoyed Calakmul more than Palenque, maybe because it takes more time and effort to get to the former (both are great but there many fewer people at Calakmul). We were initially a little unimpressed with Calakmul until we stumbled upon the two tallest pyramids. Once on top, we were the only people (we could see one or two people on top of the other) and the view was amazing - probably 100 km in all directions with nothing but Yucatan forest and no signs of civilization. Memorable!

I loved the scenery here and it felt very elegant, European and obviously a place where Mexicans retire to. Lots of people exercising and just a lovely vibe/place!

Museo Arqueologico de Campeche Fuerte de San Miguel

Reviewed By RoyL65 - Hayle, United Kingdom

Easy parking right outside the entrance,slight gradient for those with mobility problems followed by a fairly long set of stairs up to the battlements. Well worth the climb for the view all around,then a small but well displayed museum below will complete your history need for the day. Worth a stop off if passing.

Casa No. 6

Reviewed By Ch B - Leiden, The Netherlands

We went there to kill the time before our return to Cancun. The admissie is only MXP 20 and therefore worth going. The rooms are all very nice decorated though what surprised me and my children is, what time erna is this museum trying to tell. The house is teh oldest hous in town, but a lot of displayed items are of teh 19th or 20th century. That is confusing.
