I did the Calakmul Bio reserve tour and it was absolutely amazing. Not only are the ruins stunning but it was really amplified but the knowledge and passion of our guide Ezekiel. He loves the land, the history and the animals and has a lot of respect and kindness towards him. We couldn’t thank him enough for such a wonderful day. It’s beautiful and I’d love to go again one day or see the other ruins Louisa

This was a great choice to take a tour instead of driving ourselves to Calakmul ruins. Lots of interesting information and we saw some animals as well (monkeys and turkeys). The guide was excellent, spoke good English and had lots of extra information to provide when asked.

Fortunately we saw toucans, as that was my main goal. However what I don't like on such jungle/wildlife hikes is that the paths that we walk are so close to the road. It doesn' feel like the guides or the company is really trying, but just does what is easiest.

We would never find out ourselves so much about the site as we learnt from Roberto. It was very interesting day and I was happy to have such a good guide. The main thing was that he spoke good English.

Starting out early with a convenient pickup from our hotel Sebastian provided a pleasant drive pick up Roberto, our engaging, english-speaking guide. Then off to Balam Ku for the optional side adventure to see the ruins and the large freize. While viewing the stunning art/architecture Roberto provided a full background for the site in regards to history, architecture and function. Simply a must see! After arriving at Calakmul we took the optional side trip to see the animals of the reserve. The animal sightings will change based on the time of day and number of visitors. We were treated to sightings of two deer, a crocodile, a frog, a few howler monkeys and many species of bird. Also well worth the additional time. Upon arrival at the Calakmul visitor center we had a nice light meal then Roberto launched right in to the extensive history of the site. A local to the area, Roberto has an extensive knowledge of the history of the region and is an expert on the local flora and fauna. He even took us to a hidden stelae slowly being consumed by tree roots. After many hours of walking, climbing and exploring we headed out for the long drive home. On the drive to the highway we spotted the beautiful occellated turkey just hanging out on the side of the road. This adventure is definitely a full day. If you want a ruins experience and in depth immersion in the history and jungle life of the area without the tourist trap do not miss this opportunity!
