We were very positively surprised by the size of the group - it was just us (couples) and our guide Shanty. The transfer was very comfortable. Shanty answered all of our questions and was able to tell us a lot about the Maya and the temple complex in very good English. She also drew our attention to the "hiding places" of the monkey family that were sleeping in the tree. We had enough time for each building and were able to explore everything in peace. An all around nice tour. We were very satisfied. ((The food was only on the way back, so better have a good breakfast beforehand)).

Excellent day trip from Bacalar. Departure 8 a.m. return 7 p.m. Calakmul is a magnificent site that is really worth the detour! You can climb to the top of the temples, the view is breathtaking. It's incredible and the guide allows you to learn more about this civilization. We recommend 100% if you are in Bacalar or Chetumal

Great experience. Full transport support from bacalar greatly simplifies access to the site if you do not have a vehicle. The guide was very nice and we are really in a small group (4 in our case). The site is very beautiful and the view from the top of the pyramids impressive with this forest as far as the eye can see.

it was a very beautiful and well organized tour!!! thank you for it!

Guides arrived on time and provided a great tour of the site.
