Campeche Guide

Guide

Filled with wonderful colonial architecture and nestled in the state of the same name, Campeche is one of Mexico’s hidden gems. The city is adorned with 18th century buildings, quaint churches and cobbled streets that weave through the old town.

Those seeking historical edification can start a tour within the walls of the old city. Here you’ll find some of Campeche’s excellent architecture, which is best enjoyed on a tram ride, with commentary in English and Spanish. Riding through San Roman, you’ll see the church with the Black Christ, a two-metre high ebony sculpture brought from Italy in 1575.

Two of four main gates in Campeche, the Puerta de Mar (Sea Gate) and the Puerta de Tierra (Land Gate), are still standing, along with the bastions and fortresses which have since been transformed into interesting museums. Down at the old port are high walls and bastions which were once a deterrent against the many ruthless pirates that terrorized the area.

At Fort San Miguel, there’s an informative museum which is home to artefacts documenting the fort’s history and explores themes related to Mayan history. For a great view of the city, head to the Fort of San Jose, where you’ll also find a small exhibit of 16th century weapons.

The state of Campeche is packed full of fantastic archaeological sites, easy to get to from Campeche. The historic Mayan settlements, including Edzná, Becán, Xpuhil and Calakmul, are all worth visiting. Additionally, Campeche is located 196kms southeast of Merida, a charming colonial city, and 471kms northeast of Villahermosa, near the hugely popular, fascinating Palenque ruins.

The drive along Highway 180 from Merida is an interesting one, passing near Halacho, a basket-making village, and Becal with its Panama hat weavers. Turn right at Tenabo to reach Campeche. Aeromexico makes daily flights to Campeche from Mexico City. Campeche Airport is a few kilometres out of town. There are flights from destinations across North America to Mexico City.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
