Carretera a Calakmul

Calakmul Road

Nestled deep in the jungles of the greater Petén Basin region in southern Mexico, the road to Calakmul, a Maya archaeological site in the Mexican state of Campeche, is 64km long.

The road is asphalted. It ends in Calakmul, possibly the largest city during Maya times, which was 'discovered' in 1931. This long drive is located in the central/southern portion of the Yucatán Peninsula. Take care with howler monkeys and jaguars. Starting from Conhuas, heading off Carretera 186, it’s a long drive, a lot of down a winding two-way road that is really narrow; there are times you will be dread meeting another vehicle travelling the other way.
