Campeche is

An ideal place to live an experience full of wonder, generosity and placidity. Since the sixteenth century this land of deep contrasts was the subject of fantastic stories in the mouths of people eager for adventure and riches, the dream of the traveler.
In the limits of the territory of the state of Campeche was located a part of the Mayan civilization, one of the most important cultures that populated the American continent.
The Mayans founded their villages that became ceremonial centers characterized by the existence of a priestly organization and the worship of the gods, highlighting in the entity the sites of Calakmul (recently named: “Cultural Heritage of Humanity”). X’pujil , Chicanná, Becán, Hormiguero, Acalan, Jaina and Edzná among others. Later in the year of 1942 marks the meeting of two cultures, with the discovery of America the concepts and structure of the Old World were transformed. During the colony, the port of Campeche stood out as a point of connection with abroad. What allowed the economic boom and population growth, Campeche became the target of pirate attacks, corsairs endorsed by the crowns of England, France and Holland that devastated the entity.

Between 1610 and 1704 the construction of the fortication of the port began, but the bastions and the walls were completed until 1769. An important attraction of Campeche is its gastronomy: result of the fusion of Mayan, Spanish and Caribbean cuisines being unique for its presentation, aroma and flavor that surrounds the senses. At present, the geographical environment of Campeche covers continental and insular lands, rivers, lakes, and seas, included in an area of 56 126 km2.

The city of Campeche is the capital of the state, and it is in it where the most beautiful of the testimonies of the colonial era of the state is located, its historic center named: “Cultural Heritage of Humanity”. There is nothing like touring the historic monumental area, walking along its neat and clean sidewalks through its cobbled streets on a hidden urban infrastructure, without advertisements or signs covering its balconies, doors, and windows, admiring the patios and arches of the colonial houses, and eating some delicious regional dish in any downtown restaurant, admiring the colonial architecture of our state
