Becal & Campeche from Mérida, Yucatán

6 reviews
Travel to the modest village of Becal to visit a 17th-century church and learn about the process of making Panama hats from jipijapa, a fiber made from palm fronds. Then visit the ancient walled city of Campeche, which once served as a fortress to ward off pirate attacks from the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy free time for lunch and shopping before heading back to Merida.

The larger than life photos of pirates are very convincing, although I’m not sure how they knew what each one looked like. Several different rooms, well laid out. Lots to learn of Campeche wood used for dye, sisal for ropes, quite ordinary stuff that brought traders for years till consumption or commodity dried up. Fascinating cross section of a galleon and description of several different boats through the ages.

Nice surprise. Enjoyed this 30 minute show. Bright and colourful. Also enjoyed the evening show at the Land Gate. Starts at 7:30pm outside the Land Gate and then you follow a guide up onto the wall. The guide tells a very interesting story about the history of Campeche - pirates, Conquestadores, etc. However, it is only conducted in Spanish. You are welcome to join in if you don't speak Spanish. Great to be up on the walls at night when they are lite. Great views down onto the old town.

This beautiful colonial building has a prominent position in the historical centre of Campeche. We heard that there is a light show here at 8pm Thursday to Saturday but unfortunately we weren't here at that time to see it.

Here on this building at 8pm there is a light show worth watching. Best part is that it is free and is 30 minutes long.

It has clearly been running for a with a while, but still a must see. Beautifully created, a lovely way to wind down at the end of a day. It tells a story of sorts. I went twice because I missed the first 5 mins.
