Pyramid of the Masks, Corozal Town

#12 of 43 in Historic Sites in Quintana Roo
Ruin · Tourist Spot
Kohunlich (X-làabch'e'en in Modern Mayan) is a large archaeological site of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization, located on the Yucatán Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo about 25 km east of the Rio Bec region, and about 65 km west of Chetumal on Highway 186, and 9 km south of the road.

The original name of the site is unknown. The actual Spanish name does not actually derive from Mayan but from the English Cohune Ridge where cohune palm grew. In 1912 this place was known as Clarksville, referring to the nearby logging camp that was 3 kilometers north of the site.

  • We visited both Kohunlich and Dzibanche. The road out to Kohunlich is shorter and well paved so there were a few more people visiting including tour buses. The ruins are in more of a jungle setting...  more »
  • The temple complex at Kohunlich is amazing. There are several pyramids and a ball court. It's very well preserved and you can climb to the top of most of them  more »
