Yucatán Peninsula 2/3

February 17, 2018  —  Mexico

Here are some interesting archeological sites in the Yucatán Peninsula. They are less-visited sites and for some of them, the highlight is the road to get there, and the feeling of being in a remote area far away from any big centres.

Calakmul

Calakmul - Campeche - Mexico

From 250 to 695 AD, Calakmul was the leading city of the region. It was the great rival of Tikal in Guatemala.
