HOTELS IN CALAKMUL
If you have read my post about Calakmul (which you can find here) you might have noticed that I suggested staying in Xpujil because you will be able to be close to much more places to visit.
However, if your intention is to visit only Calakmul, your best choice would be the iconic PUERTA CALAKMUL located right at the entrance of the Biosphere.
Its a total immersion with nature as you wake up at the sound of the birds chirping around your cottage in the deep jungle. The accommodations are what I call simple chic, made of natural material like wooden and stones and will offer you tranquillity and privacy for your comfort and enjoyment. You will be able to use tv and wifi in the common areas only, where also the restaurant is located. The kind concierge will be able to assist you with the organization of tours and taxi for all your visits if you don’t have a car.
HOTELS IN XPUJIL
If you are comfortable with driving and you wish to stay in Xpujil town or close by, I can suggest you the following properties.
RIO BEC DREAMS
I actually stayed there a few years ago, during my first visit in Calakmul. I loved it; to sleep literally in the jungle hear the sound of nature it was an experience. The rooms are very much looked after and nicely decorated. Intimacy and tranquillity are guaranteed. The stuff is very kind and welcoming. The price is very affordable and great for the quality provided. It is located at 12 km from Xpujil. You can see the sign from the road. Can’t-miss it.

Situated on the way to Valentin Natural, just at the beginning of the secondary road, those are beautiful cottages inside nature. I great solution if you wish to feel like in your home at a few minutes driving from Xpujil Archaeological site, Valentin Natural, Becan and Chicanna’, right in the heart of Calakmul area.
HOTEL CASA MAYA
Situated just beside hotel Rio Bec, Hotel Casa Maya is the largest in the area and yet you can still find peace and tranquillity. The comfortable rooms are situated on 3 levels in a beautiful garden. Some rooms have also a private balcony. The guests have free use of bicycles as the area is popular for biking and hiking. The hotel also provides car rental. Wifi is also available. Click on the link above for more info on rates and availability.
HOTEL MAYA BALAM
This is to me the best offer in terms of quality/price – It has a very reasonable price for the great quality it offers.. The rooms are immaculate and nicely decorated, wifi throughout the property and it is at a walking distance from the town center. What makes it cheaper from the above choice is the fact that it is not immersed in the jungle which can be considered a plus factor for nature lovers and causes an increase of the rates. However, in terms of the quality of the rooms, it is definitely comparable if not better than the more expensive neighborhood
These are the hotels I have checked out myself but you can explore further options on this link
ENJOY YOUR STAY IN CALAKMUL and please let me know how it went! I look forward to hearing from you!!
