  • Closest Hotel to Calakmul Mayan ruins in Campeche, Mexico

    Puerta Calakmul, translated as “door to Calakmul”, is an eco-hotel strategically positioned at the entrance to the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve. It is a great place to stay for those who want to explore the famous and mystic Calakmul ruins before the tourist crowds get there. It’s also a great place to unwind, unplug and sleep in your own comfortable “Cabin in the Jungle”.

    Tucked away in the middle of a tropical forest, with no hotels for miles, yet close to the road leading to and from Palenque, Puerta Calakmul hotel is truly one of a kind.

    Fifteen lovely bungalows are integrated perfectly into the natural beauty of the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve. Thatched roofs, canopied full-size beds, beautiful woodwork and large exterior terraces with inviting hammocks are just some of the design details that characterize Puerta Calakmul’s bungalows.

    Themed rooms, jungle pool and convenient amenities

    Each room has its own theme and offers modern-day conveniences like ceiling fans, private bathrooms with hot water, 24-hour electricity and security safe. But these are not the only ‘luxuries’ that guests at Puerta Calakmul can take advantage of.

    A uniquely-shaped pool, which looks more like a cerulean-colored pond, and a charming restaurant will definitely make your stay at this eco hotel even more pleasant. The restaurant offers a large variety of dishes and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (including box lunches for the Calakmul ruin trip). There is also a TV room upstairs and a Wi-Fi internet service in the restaurant and the reception.

    Book your ruins tour with their friendly staff

    Personal guides are available for tours to take you to the archaeological zones, nature paths in the biosphere or to the bat cave (5 miles away).

    Only a few people know it, but there is more to the Campeche region and Calakmul area that can justify your trip here. Puerta Calakmul hotel is a strategic stopping point on the road to nearby Chiapas, the ruins of Palenque, Bonampak, Yaxchilan and natural wonders like Agua Azul and Misol Ha.

    If you consider yourself more of an adventurer than a tourist; if your goal is to explore the side of Mexico, you’ll never get to experience in all-inclusive resorts, then Puetra Calakmul hotel is the “puerta” to adventure.

    Go ahead and vote for exploring off the beaten paths and staying in unique accommodations, by choosing the captivating jungle ambiance of Puerta Calakmul hotel.
