And we drove to Merida, which is the capital city of the state of Yucatan. Known as “White City” because of the large use of white limestone and white paint this traditional city depicts much of the splendor of Colonial Mexico. Merida is nothing like Cancun or Playa Del Carmen; I savored Mexican culture and was glad to see no more party and noisy life. Thereafter, we visited the beautiful City of Campeche. I love history, culture, architecture, serene rivers, and graceful beaches – I felt like mingling with my ancestors.
Our journey’s end was Champoton, which is predominantly a fishing port. There was nothing to do in Champoton, except contemplating the beautiful ocean. Nevertheless, I loved Cahmpoton dearly. Just sitting on a bench and contemplating the alluring ocean made me carried away as though I were transported to another world.
