Champotón isn’t really on the tourist track, but if you enjoy the peace of small seaside towns, then Champotón is worth the stop. It offers beautiful colonial buildings such as the church of Our Lady of Mercedes, the bastion of San Antonio, and the Franciscan parishes of Seyba Playa and Champotón.
More recent buildings include the Candelaria Church, built in the late 19th century. Around Champotón, you can visit some former haciendas, excellent examples of civil architecture from the 19th and 20th centuries. Nearby are the beautiful beaches of Punta Xen and Chenkán. Champotón is also the name of the mangrove-lined river that runs through the town. If you enjoy bird watching or fishing, we recommend taking a boat tour to explore its natural beauty.
