To go up the 65 steps of the Templo de los Cinco Pisos, a rope is laid out in the middle of the main staircase. Use it if you are unsure of heights, but remember that it is usually easier to go up than come down. Take it easy with the heat which makes the exertion a bit more strenuous. The view from the top is worth the scramble, but care is still needed if you are unused to the exertions or you’re taking small children - man of whom could be heard crying when the time for descent had come.

Campeche is a safe town, low crime rates and even better people, very nice and with a good sense of hospitality, you will not find a nicer and cleaner town in Mexico than Campeche, i am a Campeche native studying tourism in Colorado, i have to say Campeche has a lot to offer turist and people who want to relax, there are several clubs and the beach is just wonderful, if you are the outdoorsy kind like me you will enjoy the fishing, i can give you several people you can ask for a fishing trip, there is camping to and there is the mayan ruins, some barely touched by people, so go and enjoy Campeche it is just beautiful.
Humorous story, as this is actually just a personal experience, so the warning would be to myself. The picture of the beach here is on the Gulf side of the Yucatan by Celestun. We camped here on the beach for the night. At the same time, in Kansas City where I live, the biggest ice storm ever hit the area and knocked the power out. Fortunately for my house the power remained with my wife and two kids, but for my best friend, he lost his power. So for a week, his family was with mine, 2 women and 5 kids until the power came back. Needless to say, I have never lived this down, as she still reminds me of it from time to time. (The beach was great!)
