8pm light show nightly, more than worth a visit. Get there a little early to grab a spot away from the idiots videoing it!

As everyone said the light show is great and better than Meridia. I like the plaza better too. Cathedral looks awesome at night. Not much going on at waterfront though

This museum provides an excellent compact history of Campeche and has good exhibits. There is a free guided tour with added attractions that you should take even if only available in Spanish

There is a great small museum inside the Palacio Centro Cultural. It's exceptionally well done, with multimedia and explanations in flawless English. It's about the history of the city and socio-political issues related to it. The museum is free and it's well worth a visit....More
