  • We were in this Mayan ruins following the visit to Palenque. Both are of course difficult to compare, but Balamku has its charm due to its secluded location and a few visitors! The buildings are beautiful and provide a great photo backdrop. On the way from Palenque - Chetumal you can plan this trip well!

  • Within two kilometres of the road Xpuhil Escárcega is a small archaeological site with a dozen of ruins in the jungle. However, this modest site contains an admirable mural of more than 10 meters long and 3 meters high whose colors are not totally altered. Very easy to access and well laid out this site worth a visit.

  • Balamku is a few kilometers further to the West than the exit to Calakmul on highway 186. Balamku exit to the North clearly signposted. You can fine with own transport back and the parking is free, although a small gratuity is due. Access to the site is 40 pesos pp. It's a small site with some nice ruins, where you also on The spectacle, however, is the gigantic Mag. beautiful Frisian (sculpture) in the main pyramid. Ask the supervisor to open the space for you. He'll give you like explanation, but no one on the entire site speaks English (no not a little), so beyond a few core words came we don't. Amazing that we were the only visitors at that time, what a rest. A detour to Balamku including travel time will cost you no more than an hour and it is therefore an ideal appetizer if you visit Calakmul.
