Join us on a journey to the ancient  place of Mayan pilgrimage known today as Chacchoben, “The Place of Red Corn.” At the pier, you will be greeted by bilingual guides who will direct you to an air-conditioned bus. Onboard the bus your guide will brief you on the interesting history and unique culture of the tour ahead.

The bus ride to Chacchoben is about 50 mins. When you arrive, your guide will escort you through the ruins located deep in the Mayan Jungle, giving you complete explanations of the sacred temples and other structures seen there as well as great information about this ancient civilization.

See original red paint on the stucco walls of one of the pyramids and the temple where a mural was found showing the astronomical positions of the planet Venus. You will have time to climb the Gran Basamento taking you above tree level, here archaeologists found ceremonial offerings dating to around 1,000 B.C.
