Hotel Puerta Calakmul

Carretera 186, Km 98, Calakmul, Campeche, 24640, Mexico

Just outside the entrance to Reserva de la Biósfera Calakmul, this ecological retreat has gravel pathways that wind through the jungle to 15 private cabanas, each rustic in design with palapa roofs, tree stump nightstands, and parchment paper lampshades inlaid with leaves and bits of bark. Although there is no air-conditioning, ceiling fans, cement floors, and windowless walls (screens enclose each cabana) keep accommodations surprisingly cool. There's a small pool and a decent restaurant that's open until 10 pm, but guests are mostly drawn to the property for its proximity to wildlife and neighboring ruins. Couples traveling together might want to request Cabana 9 and 10, which are built as a two-story bungalow.
