Kohunlich-Ruins of the Rio Bec

( Sightseeing / Archaeological Sites )

A Karen Brown Recommendation

Dotting the stretch of highway between Escárcega and Chetumal is a group of fabulous Mayan ruins in an area called Río Bec. These are some of our favorite archaeological sites in Mexico—not only because they have awesome structures, but also because you are frequently the only person about, a truly magical experience. The turnoff to Kohunlich is signed and is actually located about a 15-minute drive off the main highway. The special features here are an impressive pyramid, the Temple of the Sun (also called Temple of the Masks), whose steps are flanked on each side with eight, huge, stone masks, some of which show traces of their original red paint. These quite fearsome faces have bulging eyes and protruding ears. Kohunlich covers a vast area, and it is fun to wander the paths that wind through the jungle. You will come across a ball court and also a large plaza which was the marketplace.
