City Tours to Campeche

One of the highlights of the city of Campeche are its impressive fortifications. Built in the 17th century to protect the city from pirate attacks, these fortresses are now some of the most important historical and cultural monuments in Mexico. Our Campeche City Tour will take you to explore 4 of the 8 forts that make up the walled enclosure:

Baluarte de San Carlos, built in the 18th century, stands on the edge of the sea and is surrounded by an impressive wall that encircles the old town. From atop the walls, you can see the impressive fortification system that protected the city from enemy ships. You can even find here a spot for birdwatching in these trips to Campeche!

Baluarte de la Soledad is an outstanding example of military architecture. Visitors can marvel at the Baluarte's majestic stone walls, walk along the ramparts and admire the beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. One of the most impressive features of the Baluarte is its tunnel system, which allowed soldiers to move around unnoticed and reach strategic points around the city.

Baluarte de San Miguel combines both European and Mayan elements in its unique architecture. Its walls are made of limestone blocks, and its museum hosts a famous jade mask. The Fort is not only a historical monument but also a cultural attraction that hosts many events throughout the year. You can attend concerts, art exhibitions, and other cultural events inside the its walls.

Fortin de San Jose El Alto offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and coastline. The fort itself is beautifully preserved, with its walls, towers, and gun emplacements all intact and ready to explore. Visitors can learn about the fort's construction, its strategic importance, and the brave soldiers who defended it.

Edzna in the Morning

No tours in Campeche are complete without visiting the ancient ruins that are scattered throughout the region, and Edzna is one of the most important.

  • Our tour to Edzna will take you to the Great Acropolis, which stands tall at the center of the Edzna complex, with multiple tiers of platforms and staircases leading to the top. From here, you can marvel at the surrounding jungle and the view of the Grand Plaza, the city's ceremonial center.
  • Then, the Temple of the Masks, features a unique series of rooms connected by narrow hallways, creating a labyrinthine effect that adds to the temple's mystique.
  • The Ball Court at Edzna is one of the largest and best-preserved, with stone rings on either side of the court where players would attempt to pass a rubber ball without using their hands or feet.
  • In addition to these iconic structures, Edzna also features several smaller plazas, residential areas, and an intricate network of canals and reservoirs that allowed the city to thrive despite its arid environment.
