Ruin Tourist Spot
Visit ancient pyramids at Chacchoben Ruins. The pyramids were discovered under mounds in the 1970s and later excavated to reveal three very well-preserved temples. Other ancient Mayan buildings remain under mounds and are currently being excavated. Walk the circular path which takes you to each building, as you observe the architecture. Look closely at some of the buildings, which retain traces of the original red paint.
