The Murmuring of our Ancestors
Known for the Temple of the Masks in the middle of tropical vegetation, lies the archaeological site of Kohunlich, one of the most visited sites in the area, which still preserves monumental reliefs with original paint.
Walk through this ceremonial center and discover the secrets behind each building. Discover the riddles that hide some of their most representative trees and listen to the murmuring of the ancestors at each step.
There are no tripods, drones or other professional equipment
The Mayan site of Kohunlich is 2 hours from Costa Maya Port. The tour involves a lot of walking and more climbing than many other sites around the area. And that is because the Archeological site is covered with more buildings and it takes more time to go up and down. It takes another 2 hr for the tour to cover most of the area, even though it can be a little bit longer if there is enough time if you decide to do so.
NOTE: If you have a specific request please let me know so I can customize the tour for you. For visitors coming on cruise ships please consider docking and boarding time when selecting the excursion.
