Here is a little information about the Mayan Ruins site, Kohunlich.

 

This bunch of blooms looks like a smiling face :) These flowers were admired while touring the Kohunlich Ruins in Costa Maya, Mexico.

This photo is based on some of the Masks of the Ancient Maya City of Kohunlich ... the Cave is a imagined place ...

 

Mayan ruins in Costa Maya, Mexico

 

Ancient cultures and material remnants from those times are things I find fascinating.

Kohunlich, Quintana Roo, México.

 

Templo de los Mascarones, cubierto de grandes figuras con atributos del dios sol Kinich Ahau. (300 a.C. -250 d.C.)

"...Se desconoce el nombre original del asentamiento. El nombre de Kohunlich proviene del inglés cohoon ridge (lomerío de corozos), que se refiere a la existencia de palmas de corozo, especie característica del área del Petén. En 1912, el sitio fue visitado por primera vez por el arqueólogo norteamericano Raymond Merwin, cuando el lugar era conocido con el nombre de Clarksville, en alusión al campamento maderero que se encontraba tres kilómetros al norte del área monumental de Kohunlich."

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.

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.

This is one of the churches I saw on the drive to the port after touring the Mayan Ruins, Kohunlich.

November 26, 2014; 330/365 (2522/2557)- The biggest reason I wanted to go on this cruise was to see Mayan ruins, and I wasn't disappointed! We went to two different places, both of which were different but very interesting. It was a long drive on a bus to get there, and then a couple of long climbs to the top; still well worth it.

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.
