"You are on your own!" Calakmul Favorite Tip by wilocrek

Calakmul Favorites: 2 reviews and 0 photos

Favorite thing: The best part of Calakmul is also its greatest challenge, its completely isolated! Plan on filling up your gas tank in Xpujil and buying snacks and water before heading to Calakmul because once there you will not have that luxury. Bring sunscreen. Although the majority of the paths are enveloped in the shade of the jungle, if you choose to climb the structures they are in direct contact with the sun! Climbing the structures is one of the great experiences of being in Calakmul so be sure to wear proper shoes for your adventure. I actually climbed them in sandals so it can be done at the expense of blisters and slippery footing. Your call.
