Campeche City

It was a short but fun drive to Campeche City the capital of the state.

This place has a very European feel especially inside the ancient stone city walls where the building are all painted bright colours. It is also famous for amazing seafood.

There are ruins of a number of the forts that defended the city. We visited the Fuerto San Miguel.
