Tranvía de la Ciudad information
Lonely Planet review
Daily bilingual tours by motorized tranvía (trolley) depart from Calle 10 beside the Plaza Principal and last 45 minutes. They cover Campeche's historical center, some traditional neighborhoods and part of the malecón . Occasionally, another trolley called El Guapo goes to the Fuerte de San Miguel and Fuerte de San José (though these tours don't leave enough time to visit the forts' museums). Check schedules at the ticket kiosk in the Plaza Principal.
