Spectacular edifices and jungle vistas – we’ve never seen so much wildlife near Maya ruins as here in Calakmul. No doubt because of the remoteness of this location.

We’d climbed way up and were taking in the landscape below us, not even aware this critter was peering down at us from above.
After climbing down we were viewing the photos and spotted the raptor. Of course we made a hasty climb back up to get some close ups.
