¡Recommendations and services!

Everything you need to know before traveling
The climate in the Calakmul region is classified as warm sub-humid. Especially from May to September it is usually very hot, so we recommend taking precautions such as carrying enough water to hydrate at all times, sunscreen and a cap or hat.
If you are traveling by car, the available gas stations are in the town of Xpujil, at the entrances coming from Chetumal and from Escárcega, each with a convenience store and restrooms. Apart from these, there are no other nearby gas stations in the area , so we recommend stocking up on enough fuel for your tours of Calakmul.
To plan your visit to Calakmul, it is important to consider that today there are no banks in the area, and the closest ones are in Escárcega and Chetumal. If you want to withdraw money, there are only ATMs from Banco Azteca and BBVA.
To date,most establishments do not accept cards (mainly in communities) so we recommend you bring enough cash.
