The Ancient Maya City and Protected Tropical Forests of Calakmul, Campeche is located in the Yucatán Peninsula. While now mostly uninhabited and covered by tropical forest, it is the heartland of the area in which, from the mid-first millennium B.C. to about A.D. 1000, the Maya civilization reached its climax.
