Sabancuy & Champoton
If you are looking for absolutely deserted beaches, the state of Campeche is the place to be. With it’s white sand beaches and blue-greenish oceans, it’s beaches are way less visited than the neighbouring states of Yucatan and Quintana Roo.
We visited the little pitoresque town of Sabancuy, with it’s idyllic coastline. We did not really plan our stay and we ended up staying in a motel in the center, which was not bad at all. In the center, which is about 3km of the coast, there are plenty of restaurant (seafood restaurants close at around 6-7pm) and 2 hotels.
There is one camping hotel at the coast, where you can rent 3 types of rooms. Prices range from MX$800 to MX$2500 per night.
We stayed there in the daytime to relax at the beach and ate there at night.
In the center of Sabancuy, there was a really nice little restaurant called “El Garaje”, because it was built in a garage. We had breakfast there and I can honestly say it was one of the best we’ve had in Mexico!
We had a torta with pollo and cheese, a pinapple juice and a coffee. The service was really good, they were the most friendly people!
After our visit in Sabancuy, we travelled to Champoton, only 40 min east. Champoton is a bigger town (180,000 people aprox.) but we stayed in the outskirts of town, in a nice hotel with swimming pool. Just accross the street, there were a lot of local seafood restaurants, were we ate like kings!
