I left the unforgettable Riviera Maya to head to the Gulf coast of the marvellous and quiet Campeche city.

The city is one of the most beautiful I have seen so far in Mexico and oddly with no signs of foreign tourists.

It is also a town with history since that the local timber, silver, and gold were traded to Europe

I love the Campeche repainted colonial houses with their original pastel colour, especially at sunset it becomes more charming.

Campeche’s ambiance is improved by the long promenade, stretching along the Gulf of Mexico with wonderful lines of palm trees along the way and characteristic artistic sculptures.

Especially at sunset with many people crowding the restaurants and bars to enjoy this spectacle.

Not only the coastline but also the walled city, the fascinating narrow alleys and colourful buildings and the Catedral de la Concepcion Inmaculada.

I would recommend anyone who travels in this state to pay a visit to this city because your time spent here will not be wasted.
