Mexico / Accommodation

A guide to accommodation options in the Calakmul area

The southern reaches of the Yucatan Peninsula are sparsely populated and hotels are few and far between.

Despite Calakmul’s undoubted appeal, its geographic isolation means it gets very few visitors and this is reflected in the paucity of accommodation options – there is just one hotel, Puerta Calakmul, and even it is located over an hour’s drive from the ruins, just off the main east to west highway 186.

Further east along the same road is the only other suitable option in the area, the Chicanna Eco Hotel. Most visitors who include Calakmul in their holiday tend to come from Campeche and, as such, Chicanna Eco Lodge involves a degree of doubling back on one’s self.

However, in addition to the Mayan ruins at Calakmul, there are further interesting sites at Chicanna itself, as well as nearby Becan, meaning the Chicanna Eco Lodge is well worth considering.
