“Calakmul was one of the largest and most powerful ancient cities ever uncovered in the Maya lowlands.” (Wikipedia) When I was in Campeche before, I decided not to buy a tour till Calakmul, but visit this “must see” Maya ruin, when I will be back from Belize, because it seemed, that the site is closer to Escárcega, but Campeche. At that time, I did not know, what I know today. Today I am more rich of a lot of moments, more wise as well, but also more poor. To visit Calakmul had cost me around 1.500 MXN, almost 500 more than necessary. Why I had to visit the ruins and why the visit became so expensive you can read about soon.
I have finished the update of the homestay with the Maya family. For following this homestay, click on Belize and scroll down to the 30th June.
Coming back from Belize I stayed a night in Chetumal, Quintana Roo. Please click on Quintana Roo and scroll down to July 2018, if you are interested in it.
I also have updated my site about Campeche – Escárcega and Calakmul. For reading about these places, please click on Campeche and scroll down to July 2018.
