Then onto Campeche, which is another UNESCO world heritage city because it’s still surrounded by the old city walls. This was our first sighting of the gulf of Mexico. Campeche was really just a stop to see Uxmal, another Mayan ruin – but I won’t walk you through that one cos I know this blog is huge.
