Private Becal Village & Campeche City Tour
Visit the friendly town of Becal, distinguished not only for the almost complete absence of motorized vehicles, but most importantly for the ancient Maya tradition of making intricately woven hats known as “Jipi Japa”, or Panama hats. Witness first hand how artisans working in caves, the humidity of which allows for easy manipulation of the palm leaf raw material, produce a range of products that include earrings, rings, small animal figures, bags and more.
Next on your itinerary is Campeche, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a colonial fairyland whose walled city center is a tight enclave of perfectly restored pastel buildings, narrow cobblestone streets, fortified ramparts and well-preserved mansions. Its principal attractions are the 18th-century Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, the government palace, St Michael’s Fort, the archaeological museum and the city’s seven original bulwarks.
After these visits your guide will recommend where to eat delicious local food and to shop if you are looking for local handcrafts. Wrap up your day with a refreshing swim in a beautiful cenote.
