The archaeological site of Chinkultic was a Mayan settlement embedded in the mountain and the nature since the pre-Classical period.

Wonder at the way the architectural complex adapts to the topographical features of the terrain. Stroll through the residential complex around the great acropolis, and climb to the main pyramid to admire the underwater sinkhole (Cenote) from above and enjoy the multicolored lagoons of Montebello in the distance. 

Discover the Plataforma de Las Lajas, formed by large stones that can measure up to eight feet. Look for the ball court and imagine what the sculptures around it must have witnessed and the local rituals carried out here as part of the worship of the sun and water.
