We booked the "Calakmul Ancient Maya City and Biosphere Reserve" tour, which was a daytour. We were picked up in front of our hotel, to drive to Calakmul, which took about 2 hours. Then we walked through Calakmul, where we could not only view the Mayan structures, but also had the opportunity to climb them. Luiz, our tourguide for the... More

We stayed in the Ka'an Expedition cabins, which I definitely recommend over the hotels available in Xpujil. Luis, our guide, picked us up right at our front door. Luis comes from a family which has lived in the small nearby community for generations, so he can really provide a unique, personal, perspective as well as the usual information one expects... More

Calakmul is a must see when visiting Maya ruins. You definitaly need a guide to lead you through the "jungle" and understand the meaning of things. And the guide we had, Luis, was great for that!

Luis was a great guide, he knew a lot about the site and about the mayas in general. He showed us details on the buildings. He also customized the length of the visit for us so we could drive to our next destination before night. The whole experience was totally worth it.

The jungle is really amazing, you get the chance to see animals in their natural life and is awesome. The archeological sites are great and the views from the top are breathtaking, I so recommend to visit this place with a tour because you know a bit more about the civilizations and the way back is easier when tired.

Visited the site with Luis from Kaan Expeditions. He arrived at our lodging to pick us up for the trip on time and was very well organized, experienced and knowledgeable about this site as well as other major Mayan sites. Yes, I would recommend this company for this tour.

Luis was an excellent tour guide and gave a very thorough tour of Calakmul! We were a group of 9 and everyone was really friendly and Luis did a great job keeping us all together without herding us around. The ruins are so vast with very few travelers so you never feel like you're among a crowd. I also think... More

Ka'an Expeditions are a first class tour company. Our Guide Louis was extremely knowledgeable about the Mayan ruins and also helped us with our Spanish during the long drives. He was very people oriented and nothing was too much to ask.

Ka'an Expeditions offers tours with experienced guides. The guides really know about the Mayan culture (some of them even have Mayan roots). Moreover, Ka'an Expeditions also offers Casa Ka'an with cozy houses inside a peaceful section of the jungle nearby Xpujil. Highly recommended.
