Calakmul was a major superpower in the region and primary rival to Tikal for dominance of the area. One hundred three carved stelae have been found at this huge site, with dates ranging from 514 A.D. to 830 A.D. Calakmul probably supported a population of over 50,000, and so far more than 6,250 structures have been discovered in an area of 25 square kilometers. A UNESCO World Heritage Site for its Maya ruins and the largest jaguar population outside the Amazon.
