Short description of the site
Discovered in 1990, this spectacular site with its remarkable stucco facade – 56 feet long and 13 feet high – really gives a complete impression of how these cities looked 1500 years ago. This is a little known must see particularly on your day for Calakmul. The site is small, only 3 areas have been cleared but it is the frieze that makes this so special. We suggest you visit it before Calakmul as Balamku will most likely be closed when you leave Calakmul. Most likely there will be no-one around you as it seems to be so unknown.
