The Carnival - bright costumes, incredible dancing, colorful floats; whether you like to dance along, or just watch the colors and the costumes and enjoy the great food, it's a good time for everyone. So, where is this exciting Carnival? It's in the city of Campeche, on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, not far from Merida and about 6 hrs away from Cancun. The Campeche Carnival is one of Mexico's longest standing Carnival traditions, dating back to colonial times. In fact, the city of Campeche itself, as well as the state with the same name, are now beginning to capture a lot more attention from international tourists, not only because its exciting Carnival celebrations, but also because of the colonial beauty of the city of Campeche, which was originally built as a fort against pirates raiding from Caribbean; the old fortification walls still surround the colonial city center. The colorfully painted houses, the brick-paved roads, the colonial cathedral and the beautiful city square all add a certain charm to life in this city. Does this sound like an interesting place to live? A growing number of Americans and Canadians are beginning to think so. Besides the exciting possibility of living in one of the most beautifully restored colonial cities, there are also beachfront lots nearby, all still available for a fraction of the price you might think!
