Costa Maya Excursion to Chacchoben: Discover Mayan History

There is a lot to discover in the archaeological site Chacchoben, next to the village with the same name. Few Mayan people live there quite remote. The Mayan ruins Chacchoben are very authentic and surprisingly well preserved. Architecturally, they were influenced by the Mayan people from Peten-Guatemala, their most important time was between 200 and 900 AD. Today, spider monkeys relax in the structures of the sun and moon pyramid.

Go and discover the ancient world of the Maya, the Mayan heritage can be found everywhere in Mexicos south-east. Ancient temples, the ceremonial center, well-preserved structures, perfectly embedded in the typical flora and fauna. Keep your eyes and ears open when the woodpecker knocks against the trees, giant toads hide in the ground and the monkeys swing in the branches of old trees.
