Chacchoben is located 23 miles away, and it consists of several ruins nestled in the rainforest. It is the region’s most significant settlement and is believed to originate around 200 B.C., although its golden age was centuries later. You can admire various structures, the most famous of which are Gran Basamento, Vías, and Grupo II. In addition to the archeological site, the vegetation is the other star. It includes sapote, white cedar, and mahogany trees.
