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.

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.
