  •  And Campeche (6+ / 0-)

    I really must insist on it.

    The capital city of the state is the city of San Francisco de Campeche, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

    Campeche was home to the ancient Mayan culture. Their advanced cultural and scientific development made the Maya one of the most important pre-Hispanic cultures in Latin America. Many Maya ruins that still stand in Campeche, such as Calakmul, Chicanna, Becan, Edzna, Xpujil, Hormiguero, Balamku, and El Tigre, among many.

    It's easier to defend an entire peninsula than defend across land borders anyhow.

    Disclaimer, Campeche is my favorite place on earth. It would be so much easier not to have to go through customs to visit
