Why should you VISIT CALAKMUL?
Calakmul is the largest tropical rainforest jungle in Mexico. Alongside the protected areas of southeastern Chiapas, other areas of the Yucatan Peninsula, and the Peten of Guatemala and Belize, it forms the second largest rainforest area in America.
More than 1,200,000 hectares of jungles in the Calakmul Region have been decreed and make up the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve and the Balam Ku and Balam Kin reserves.
Calakmul is one of the most important areas where water is captured and then flows underground to the wetlands of the Laguna de Términos and the south of Quintana Roo, thus acting as a true water factory and providing an environmental service for all its inhabitants.
In this site you will be able to know diverse and impressive archaeological zones like the one of Calakmul, as well as ecotourism projects operated by local communities that protect the jungles and wild species through the development of the activity. Come and enjoy this mosaic of experiences in your way through the Yucatan Peninsula.
