The State of Campeche is located on the Gulf Coast side of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is a large area, which borders with the Yucatan State on the North and Northeast, with Quintana Roo on the East, and with Guatemala to the South, along with the State of Tabasco. The entire state has a population of about 700,000.

The state capital, Campeche, is located right on the coast, and is about two hours drive from Merida, the beautiful regional, colonial capital of the Yucatan. Cancun is about five hours driving time along four lane toll roads most of the time. Ciudad del Carmen, the second largest city in the state, is about two and one half hours drive from Campeche, and is about one and one half hours drive from Santillana del Mar along the coastal highway.

Driving South from Campeche to our project, you will drive along a four lane toll road for about 40 minutes to Champoton, the major municipality in the area, which has a population of about 50,000. It is a friendly town that relies on fishing and agriculture, although tourism and new real estate developments promise to be much more important in the future. There are excellent local supermarkets, a farmers market for fruit and produce, and the area is famous for shrimp and other fresh seafood, delivered daily.

Santillana del Mar and Sea Ranch is about 12 miles past Champoton, along the local highway that follows the coast.
