Kohunlich archaeological site

Enjoy a varied vacation in the state of Campeche where all kinds of plans are possible. From lounging by the pool of your hotel, to sunbathing, to hiring excursions to learn much more about the place you are visiting for a limited time.

The Bec River

The impressive Bec River is located in the state of Campeche, specifically in the eastern part of the state, close to Quintana Roo and the Riviera Maya. Its importance lies in the fact that it is one of the most important sites of the ancient Maya civilization, in addition to housing many buildings and a lot of history to know.

It is believed that in the past it was surrounded by various noble peoples, and these left remains that raised many questions to those who discovered them today. It was in 1906 when the French archaeologist Maurice de Périgny discovered the remains we are talking about.

Multiple archaeologists who visited the Mayan ruins after him agree that the archaeological zone of Río Bec is peculiar and very different from contemporary Mayan sites of the time. This is due to the fact that the most important buildings in this precinct seem to be quite different from the usual temples and religious centers, and there is no construction similar to the popular ball game.

Kohunlich: archaeological site

It is believed that the name comes from the surrounding plants, a species characteristic of the place. It was discovered only 100 years ago, in 1912, by an American archaeologist named Raymond Merwin.

The site is noted for its architectural complexes for civic and religious life, among other buildings and grounds, which covered an area of approximately 14 square kilometers. Among the most important buildings are the Templo de los Mascarones, the Plaza de las Estelas or the Conjunto de los 27 escalones.

If you want to visit the site, you will have to get to the town of Francisco Villa, near Chetumal in Quintana Roo. The entrance fee is approximately 85 Mexican pesos and it is open to the public every day of the week from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., although the last pass is half an hour before closing time.

Many have searched for information about the Fiesta Americana hotel group. They were the architects of the highly acclaimed The Explorean Kohunlich. This is a popular hotel whose standards are luxury, relaxation and fun. It is located in Chetumal, Quintana Roo, so if you decide to stay there, we highly recommend visiting the ruins of the same name.
