Calakmul is an unrivaled tropical reserve that means "two adjacent mounds" in Mayan. Its ruins are recognized by UNESCO as a Cultural Heritage of Humanity, and the reserve is known as the second lung of America. 

WALK THROUGH THE JUNGLE
Observe more than 86 species of mammals. Experience the sensation of being close to jaguars, pumas, ocelots, tigers, and lions, (five of the six feline species currently living in México), as well as spider monkeys, anteaters, eagles, tapirs, and more than 300 species of birds.
Admire the beauty of the orchids: you will find about 73 different types here. 

LEARN ABOUT THE MAYAN URBAN CENTER ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE
You cannot miss the Calakmul archaeological site. Discovering the settlements of this Mayan urban center lost within the jungle is an experience worthy of a visit. 

TAKE A STROLL THROUGH BECÁN
Becán, a Mayan city surrounded by a pit, continues to hold an important place in history, as remains suggest a lot of war activity happened here.
