The State of Campeche
The State of Campeche, named "the safest State in Mexico" for a 7th time in a row, offers its visitors natural, archaeological and cultural richness.
Archaeological Mayan Zones
Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2002, is located in the southeast of the State. It is the widest protected natural area in the Southeast of Mexico, where one can find the biggest archaeological Mayan sites of the World.
The archaeological Mayan area of Edzna, only 38 miles from Campeche City still preserves more than 20 monumental buildings that reflect the concentration of the political, economic and religious power during the pre-colonial times.
The State of Campeche has 6 protected natural areas and 4 natural regions: shores, rivers, mountains and jungles, which make it the ideal place to practice kayak, mountain bike, bird watching, horseback riding, among many other outdoor activities.
23 archaeological underwater sites have been discovered along the State’s coastline, among them, Spaniard vessels from the XVII Century. This is why Campeche is one of the best places in the world to practice archaeological scuba diving. The Gulf of Mexico is also ideal for sport fishing; its waters are rich in species like Tuna, Grouper, Ray Fish, among many others.
Campeche’s gastronomy is rich, varied and with personality. It is composed by plenty of products like red meats, pork, fish and seafood, vegetables and grains, sweets, soups, creams and pasta, made with local ingredients.
