Mexico has been the country of preference of thounsands of smart tourists, not only
from the United States, but from around the world, because it offers everything the
visitor likes: beaches, sun, colonial cities, modern cities, archaeological zones,
forests, and much more, so the possibilities are endless!

and phrases in Spanish, along with basic information about the state of Campeche.
I have also included links to web sites where you could get more information about

specific word or phrase in Spanish, don't hesitate in sending me an e-mail, and I
will reply with the word or the phrase and its pronunciation. I promise!
When you start to plan your vacations do not forget to come back here and check the
basic words in Spanish you should know before you leave your home, and the places
you could visit in Campeche, and of course give a call to a travel agency specialized
in trips to Latin America, where you will find the best deals in trips to Latin America,
and more information about the places you could be interested in.
