Fodor's Review

This ecological retreat, located just outside the entrance to Reserva de la Biosfera Calakmul—Mexico's largest tropical forest reserve—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 a/c, rooms stay surprisingly cool with ceiling fans, cement floors, and windowless walls (screens enclose each

cabana). There's a small pool and a decent restaurant open until 10 pm, but guests are mostly drawn to this 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.
