This week found us in beautiful Campeche, Mexico. It’s located at the bottom of the Yucatan Penisula, right on the Gulf of Mexico. Join us for a walking tour of this historical port city that gets far less attention than Cancun, Campeche’s far-flung neighbor on the other side of the peninsula.
A few fun facts about Campeche:
- One of Mexico’s 10 UNESCO World Heritage Sites
- Site of the largest pirate attack in history
- Nicknamed The Rainbow City–watch our video to see why
Campeche was a last-minute stay for us. We originally thought of it as a stop along the way, but it ended up being a destination in itself. We’re so glad we came.
Check it out in this week’s video:
You’ll get to see our camping spot in the video and it might surprise you! While staying in the middle of it all has downsides, it also has big advantages. It was so fun to be able to walk a few minutes and be in the middle of everything.
Thanks for discovering the city along with us.
We always felt that when we got to the Yucatan Peninsula, it would signal the conclusion of our time in Mexico. Even though we have about six more weeks left in-country, it already feels like the end. We are researching border crossings and travel vaccines for Central America, and thinking about vehicle maintenance.
Despite this, we do want to stay present where we are right now. We love Mexico so much and–honestly–don’t really want to leave. This is always the challenge of full-time travel: giving up places you love in hopes that a wonderful discovery is right around the corner.
We appreciate you taking this journey with us. We invite your comments and hope you’ll stay in touch.
