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.

  • Super cool experience, we were able to take some awesome pictures and learned a lot about the culture from our guide.
  • Loved visiting here!! Best part was a tour called ?black night cave tubing and mountain climbing!!!!
  • Make sure you spend the extra money and get a private tour. This was an amazing place to visit and the property is well maintained.
  • Went there March 2011 and we loved it. The entrance had some beautiful oil palms that welcomed us in. The ruins and guide tour was great!
  • GREAT! Went here on vacation, it was great. Walking paths take you to all the ruins easy to get to. It was also very well kept from a landscaping standpoint. Our tour guide was great and allowed plenty of time for pictures while also telling us great information about the site and answering any questions we had.
