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!

We are a family of four, two adults and two teenagers aged 16 and 19. Could you give me a price for the day tour. We will have our own car so where would be the best place to stay so that we don't have a long drive on the morning of the tour? Can we meet you at the site? Many thanks. Rachel
