Chacchoben Mayan Ruins 2-2015 Quintana Roo Mexico pyramids Mahahual

Chacchoben Mayan Ruins, a settlement by the Maya at the site is estimated at 200 BC, and the structures date from 700 AD.
In the 1940s a farm was established near the site by the Cohuo family, but the ruins were officially reported to the Mexican government in June 1972 by Dr. Peter Harrison, an American archaeologist who was working on a project for Tulane University, and who also made the first maps of Chacchoben. Harrison stumbled upon this site while flying a helicopter over Mexico and noticed numerous hills in predominately flat lands. Harrison realized there were temples beneath these hills, which were naturally covered over a period of 2000 years.
In 1994 the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) excavated and restored the site, which was closed to the public until 2002. The guide said about 3% was restored.
Some structures still bear traces of the red paint-stucco with which they were originally coated.
The surrounding jungle is characterized by abundant species of fauna such as, deer, peccary, armadillo, gray fox, spider monkey and howler monkey. Deeper into the jungle, more dangerous animals like jaguar, ocelot, puma and tapir can be found.

Satellite photos have shown that there are up to 4,000 Mayan sites deep in the jungles.
