We arrived in Campeche in the late afternoon to pouring rain and flooded streets. Thankfully our hotel was located on higher ground but walking through flooded streets wasn't fun. Campeche is a beautiful city, very well planned and with lots of green parks. The malecon has a walking lane and bicycle lane and many locals use them. The majority of people I saw exercising had to be over 50. Watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico was a highlight. I always feel happy when I see the water. We had dinner at a restaurant famous for its seafood cocktails (which basically looks like vomit in a glass, no thanks) and coconut shrimp. I don't eat seafood but I ordered the coconut shrimp -- they were huge and delicious (all I could taste was coconut). At US$25, it was my most expensive meal so far but worth every cent.
