Have a wonderful time on this day trip from Costa Maya (Mahahual or Bacalar Magical Town)  as you head to visit the ruins of Calakmul and the biosphere reserve. You'll be able to tour the site, learn some history and enjoy the scenery including great flora and fauna.
Your tour begins with hotel pickup in Mahahual or Bacalar. You'll board a vehicle and start a 3-hour drive to Calakmul. Once there, you'll enjoy a 3.5-hour visit. Admire the wonderful flora and fauna surrounding the archaeological zone and maybe spot endemic birds or deer. You'll have a chance to climb the Great Pyramid and, from there, get a 360-degree view of the entire area.  Learn about the importance of this site and how it served the Maya civilization during the Classic period. There are more than 6,500 structures here and the site has already been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.  You will then have time to eat lunch and then board a vehicle back to Bacalar or Mahahual  where you will be dropped-off at your hotel.
