The boardwalk of Campeche has a length of 3.5 km, which runs parallel to the sea, between the monument of Justo Sierra and Avenida Joaquin Musel. It has a wide sidewalk for walking or cycling, benches, and even children's play areas and areas for outdoor exercise. Along the boardwalk there are several monuments and viewpoints as well as restaurants serving seafood. It is a great place to enjoy the sea breeze and a beautiful sunset.
I came to visit the fort of San Jose, which I found amazing, but for me, this was the best sight. It houses a collection of model ships and also a number of other objects from this time. It can be reached by public transportation from the historic center of town but I recommend a taxi. Both the facade and interior are perfectly restored. It's definitely a must see if you are in Campeche.
At the other end of 59th Street in front Sea Gate, is the Puerta de Tierra. Built in 1732, this gate provided the main access to the walled city of Campeche from the inside. The Puerta de Tierra opens its gates in a thick section of wall with loopholes. It is protected by a moat, which means the city is defensible at all angles. Do not miss their sound and light show "The place of the sun", an historical representation of a battle between pirates and those dwelling inside. From Thursday to Sunday at 20pm, attending the show costs 50 pesos per person.
