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.

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
