Moral-Reforma Archaeological Site

Balancán

Dress on comfortable clothes and shoes to walk in the Moral-Reforma Archaeological Site, 2 kilometers from the Reforma waterfalls. It’s a classical period Mayan site belonging to the Usumacinta basin group of cities.

The area’s importance is that it was occupied by various indigenous civilizations from 300 BC to 1000 AD. This site has five Mayan culture stelae, as well as four ancient altars and a ball court.

The area was an 87-hectares-and-at-least 30-mounds river port. It has had several names since its discovery—the first was 1907’s “La Reforma”, later 1937’s “Moral”, but it was until 1993 when “Moral Reforma” name was given.

It’s said that the archaeological site reflects various classic Mayan art elements, highlighting the Plaza Oriente, where buildings 2 and 14, used for religious ceremonies, are.
