Chacchoben offers manicured paths and an easy walk suitable for all ages and group needs. This is the most accessible Mayan Ruin site in the area due to its proximity to the port and layout of the site.

Located a short 40 minutes drive from the Port, the Chacchoben Temples are a beautiful example of the intricate Maya construction during the Maya Classic period.

The excavation of Chacchoben began in 1994 and a great deal has been discovered about the importance of this site and its people. There are still many secrets waiting to be unearthed!

Chacchoben, which means place of the red corn, is believed to have been inhabited around 200bc. However, the structures now visible at the site have been determined to have been constructed around 300-500ad.
