Chicanná & Calakmul
Chicanná, Becán and Calakmul are Mayan archaeological sites located in dense jungle in the state of Campeche on the Yucatán Peninsula. They are easily explored within a day or two, thanks to the Highway 186 which links them together.
Chicanná is thought to have been a more exclusive residence for the rulers of the local populations and is today noted for its blend of various Mayan archaeological styles from the time, with intricate details decorating the facades of relatively small pyramids. Nearby Becán was the ruling centre of the region, as evidenced in its grand plazas and two monumental pyramids. Calakmul is part of an extensive Biosphere Reserve and home to one of the tallest pyramids in Mexico, it was also considered to be a city of great importance and a large population.
