Cancun, Cozumel & the Yucatan - Campeche & Around (PDF Chapter)
This is the Campeche & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cancun, Cozumal & the Yucatan guidebook.
Campeche is the least visited of the Yucatán’s states, laced through with lonely roads, quiet coastlines and a provincial, lost-land charm. It’s home to serene villages, vast stretches of jungle, bird-dotted mangroves, and some of the most imposing Maya ruins.
- stroll through history along the colonial streets of Campeche, lined with pastel-hued buildings and edged by stone ramparts
- explore the large and impressive complexes of Edzná, the most significant Maya ruins near Campeche
- spot dolphins and seabirds from Isla Aguada, or set turtle hatchlings free at Sabancuy
- restaurants & accommodation
