This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Campeche.

Campeche is a very popular tourist destination on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Many tourists pass by Campeche on their way from or to Merida, the main city on the peninsula. The town is full of history, with a historical city centre that has been declared as a protected World Heritage Site by UNESCO -- walking around Campeche can easily have a fairly-tale feel to it! To serve as contrast to the charming, old colonial town, Campeche's port and walkway by the sea boasts a lot of life. Campeche is a fairly small town, so it's easy to get around on foot. Alternatively, there are plenty of public buses connecting the city centre to the outskirt areas, where, for example, the main bus station is located.

Apart from roaming around the colorful, car-free streets of Campeche's old town and enjoying some people-watching activities by the main square in front of the Cathedral, Campeche is also a good place to base yourself to explore some Mayan archeological ruins in relatively nearby areas. Escarcega and Chetumal would be the most visited Maya ruins from Campeche. 

As this a port city, Campeche's fish and seafood is famous, bringing to your plate the best from the Gulf of Mexico. If you're not a fan of fishy treats, there is always plenty of typical Mexican food around, from fancy restaurants in the main city square to street food, always delicious and usually safe to eat. Campeche hostels and accommodation options concentrate mainly around the old colonial town, particularly in the car-free streets and protected areas.
