Cute old town area. Easy to walk. It actually was far less touristy and busy than I expected such a colorful photogenic place to be. We were the only native English speaking tourists that we encountered.

Dear Larry and Lee Ann,
Campeche is a coastal city, there are some beaches immediately adjacent to the downtown, but they are not ideal for beach-goers. There is a small fishing village a few kilometers away, it is called Lerma. Here you can find some beaches to relax on at Playa Bonita (“Pretty Beach”).
I hope this can help you!
Have a nice travel and enjoy the time in Mexico
