Elevación natural sirvió cómo base a un gran complejo residencial (600-1200 d.C.) La calidad, elegancia el arreglo interior de sus construcciones y la espléndida vista hace pensar que allí habitaron personajes del más alto nivel jerárquico.

Mahahual, México is a village on the Costa Maya in the municipality of Othon P. Blanco on the Caribbean Sea coast of the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico located on the Yucatán Peninsula. Previously a fishing village, it is now a rapidly developing tourist center.

 

The village of Mahahual is only about 2 miles away from the Costa Maya cruise port, and cruise ships can easily be seen from the village. Mahahual has soft sand beaches, grass thatched palapas, and a coral reef a short distance off-shore called Banco Chinchorro, as well as several bars, restaurants, and shops.

 

A new development called New Mahahual is being created directly inland from the port. When ships are in port, the village is busy with cruise passengers.

 

Costa Maya Port started operations in the year of 2001. Since then it has become the second most important cruise ship port in Mexico. It has been recognized in the cruise industry for being one of the leading and most responsive ports in the Caribbean.

 

Costa Maya's port has a new and modern tourist shopping mall. The center has a central plaza with saltwater pools and 'swim-up' style bars. There are several jewellery stores and many small shops selling ubiquitous souvenir items. It is generally open only to cruise ship passengers.

 

Costa Maya is the closest port of access to many of the lesser known Mayan ruins in the Yucatan including Chacchoben and Kohunlich. These sites are substantially less excavated than the better known pyramids of Tulum and Coba to the north; Chichen Itza and Uxmal in Yucatan.

Kohunlich Archaeological Ruins, Southern Quintana Roo,

On The Yucatán Peninsula, México.

 

Kohunlich (X-làabch'e'en in Modern Mayan) is a large archaeological site of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization, located on the Yucatán Peninsula 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 Spanish name does not actually derive from Mayan but from the English Cohune Ridge where cohune palm grew.

Mayan Classic, ca. 500–700 AC with later additions.

 

The elaborate reliefs would originally have been open to the sky; the thatch roof was installed recently to protect the painting. Mayan temples were often continuously expanded, encasing earlier, worn phases with freshly carved and painted exteriors. The excellent preservation here is due to a later phase that encased and protected this phase—and which was removed during excavations.

The Templo de los Mascarones - Mask temple

The Mayan city of Kohunlich was "discovered" in 1967. Set deep in the jungle, there are few visitors (we had the place mostly to ourselves). It is a spectacular place to visit and explore.

La ciudad prehispánica de Kohunlich se localiza en las tierras bajas Mayas del sur. En el Templo de los Mascarones, estructura ornamentada originalmente con ocho mascarones de estuco (de los cuales sólo se conservan cinco), considerados como una de las muestras más acabadas de la iconografía maya.

Kohunlich is an ancient Mayan town located in the extreme south of the state of Quintana Roo (Mexico), near the border with Belize and in the south of the Yucatan Peninsula. The archaeological site is surrounded by a thick jungle and the ruins have nearly 200 mounds still covered by vegetation. The ancient town dated from the Late Pre-Classic Period (100-200 AD) and the Early Classic Period (250-600 AD). Kohunlich is famous for the great Templo de los Mascarones (Temple of the Masks).

 

The Templo de los Mascarones is a pyramid structure with a central stairway flanked by fabulous huge masks of the Sun God, 3 meters high made of stucco. In the ancient times there were eight masks who gave an impressing look to the temple to anyone who approached it. The archaeologist think that the thick lips and the prominent features of the mask are reminiscent from the Olmec sculpture.

 

The great pyramid in Kohunlich is decorated with stucco heads of the sun god Kinich Ahau in different manifestations.
