Trip Planner: Mexico / Yucatan Peninsula / Quintana Roo / Chacchoben / Zona Arqueologica De Chaachoben
Visit ancient pyramids at Zona Arqueologica De Chaachoben. 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.

Chaachoben is really worth a visit. We have seen many Mayan ruins and believe this sight is excellent. more »
A new archeological site for me. I really enjoyed our visit to Chachoban. This beautiful park includes many well preserved Mayan buildings, with the added entertainment of spider monkeys in the trees watching tourists watching them!
I had been to Chacchoben 10 years ago and the place has been modernized at the entrance to the site. They added a large entrance to the site with food, drinks and gifts for sale. There are clean bathrooms and shaded sitting areas. All these changes have made it more comfortable for a wider range of visitors. I recommend using a local guide during your visit so you can learn more about the Mayan culture. I used Native Choice out of Costa Maya and was very happy with them, they offer several packages.
