Xpujil Archaeological Site

Xpujil

A tour of the Xpujil Archaeological Zone will take you on a journey back in time when the ancient Maya inhabited this area 400 B.C., located in the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve and a few kilometers from the border with Belize.

Your first impression of Xpujil is likely to be of Building 1, a construction that stands out from the remains with three towers. If you get close, you will see that inside it there were 12 rooms with some passages and tunnels to interconnect them. Its rounded and stoic corners refuse to lose their shape in the course of time.

The Xpujil Archaeological Zone concentrates about twenty settlements in the six kilometers that make up the area. You can visit it on foot in a short period of time, but we recommend you to forget about hurrying, because as it is a small site you have the enormous advantage of getting closer to the pre-Hispanic legacy of its buildings.

During the summer the area is very busy, so we recommend you arrive very early and take your meals beforehand, since the Archaeological Zone does not have any restaurants or places to eat in order to guarantee that it remains clean and as tidy as possible.
