CALAKMUL  

ANCIENT MAYA CITY 

Embark on an unforgettable adventure to Calakmul, one of the major capitals of the Maya world and one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the last century. Immerse yourself in the majestic jungle surrounding this historical site, home to vibrant wildlife including monkeys, toucans, ocellated turkeys, deer, and, with a bit of luck, jaguars and pumas.

If you are starting from Xpujil, our journey begins with a drive of approximately 2 hoursinto the deep biosphere reserve of Calakmul (4 hours if coming from a Campeche or Bacalar). As we venture into this protected area, you'll have the unique opportunity to observe the endemic flora and fauna, breathing in the pure air that defines this natural landscape.

Upon arriving at the archaeological site, you will enjoy a walking tour lasting between 2 and 3 hours. During this exploration, our expert guides will provide insightful interpretations about the meanings and uses of the buildings you encounter, as well as fascinating details about the history of Calakmul during the Classic Maya Period.

After exploring, relax and refuel with a picnic right at the archaeological site. Surrounded by ancient monuments and the tranquility of the jungle, it’s the perfect moment to enjoy an outdoor meal and contemplate the beauty of the location.

 

This tour is not just an excursion; it is a total immersion in a peaceful and unique natural environment. If you are looking to disconnect from daily life and connect with nature and history, this journey through Calakmul is the perfect choice for you.
