For tourist tours, transportation is necessary. Transportation can be booked. To get a better understanding of the Mayan Culture and a better experience of the flora and fauna of the Calakmul biosphere area, we strongly recommend the help of a guide. You can book your tours when you arrive at the hotel. The rides are available in Spanish and English. However, if you require a tour in English, it is better to book it before your arrival, since the number of English speaking guides is limited. Confirm reception upon arrival.
Calakmul, one of the most important Mayan sites, set deep in the lowland tropical forest of southern Mexico, played a key role in the history of this region for more than 12 centuries. Its imposing structures and its characteristic integral design are extraordinarily well preserved and give a vivid idea of life in an ancient Mayan capital.
