We knew Calakmul would be fantastic, what we could not foresee was the vast knowledge and patient explanations provided by our extraordinary guide, and now friend, Ezekiel Uniuich. I am a history buff and he was able to answer every question and more with details...More

The guide was of Mayan heritage and was incredibly knowledgeable and spoke English well. It's a bit of a long drive through windy roads to get down to Calakmul so I would definitely recommend getting a guided day trip. Ka'an expeditions is reasonably priced, has...More

We're not the type who usually take tours, but we drove from Merida the day before so we felt that driving to Calakmal would be exhausting. So worth it! our guide was very knowledgeable about the history, culture, and nature of the area. He had...More

That's sub-tropical forest, not jungle, and there are fixed paths to follow, so don't expect to see many animals. Still, amassing experience to be there at the sunrise and see how the forest wakes up. All well organised, good contact and very knowledgeable, experienced guide,...More

Calakmul is in the middle of nowhere but well worth the effort to visit. The large area of Calakmul is right up there with Palenque as a major archaeological site. Ezequiel is a knowledgeable guide who provides you with a wonderful experience. The buildings are...More

We saw wildlife and the ruins. The guide had a lot of knowledge of history and nature. The only thing I would change is an earlier start to have more chances of seeing wildlife.

We went for a day trip to Calakmul with Ezequiel from Ka’an Expeditions. He was a fantastic guide! He taught us a lot about the history of the place throughout the journey and made our visit particularly special. Highly recommended to take your with him!

Quite a long trip to Calakmul, but transport is provided by the tour guide. Skilled guide both on the naturalistic and on the archeological topics. Seen several animals in the forest and closely experienced the maya ruins. Very interesting, recommended.

Longest and most boring tour that I have experienced. Too much driving. I was led to believe that the 2 hours driving included the drive from my hotel in Chetumal, but that was on top of that. 1-1/2 hours from hotel and then 2 hours...More

It is a good experience, but it is little pricy for what I paid. Our tour guide is knowledgeable and professional. However, I don't like some add-ons like jungle walk, because our walk only took 25 mins with seeing nothing but mosquitos. BTW, don't book...More
