There are just a few places in the world where a biosphere reserve holds an entire archeological area. The area of Calakmul Biosphere Reserve comprises the largest concentration of Mayan Ruins and is also home to countless species of plants and animals, which you can see if you enter the park early in the morning. The Calakmul Biosphere Reserve is the second largest protected area in Mexico and is as large to maintain around 400 jaguars, one of the largest populations on Earth.

The Biosphere Reserve of Calakmul is situated in the south east corner of Mexico in the state of Campeche sharing a border with Guatemala.

Calakmul archaelogocial

In addition to the old Mayan city of Calakmul, there are the La Muñeca ruins, Hormiguero and Balamkú. Just outside the reserve there are several other ancient Mayan ruins. Calakmul City alone contains 6,750 ancient structures and the tallest pyramid in Mexico. Cyrus L. Lundell, a biologist, made the site known to the archaeological community and named it Calakmul (ca = two, lak = adjacent, mul = pyramid - Calakmul therefore is the City of the Two Adjacent Pyramids).

Calakmul ecological

In Mexico you can find around 10% of all plants and animals of the world. To protect its biological heritage, Mexico has implemented a National System of Protected Areas. The Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, located in Campeche, is such a place and the largest tropical forest area in Mexico. Help local communities to benefit from the conservation of jaguars. Promote environmental education about jaguars. Saving the Calakmul rain forests will save the jaguars and another 60,000 species of plants and animals.
