Chacchoben (chak-CHO-ben; Maya for “the place of red corn”) is the name of a Mayan ruin

approximately 110 mi (177 km) south of Tulum and 7 mi (11 km) from the village from which it derives its name.

Settlement by the Maya at the site is estimated at 200 BC, and the structures date from 700 AD.

Modern discovery:

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. Info wikipedia

Thank you Becca at On dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea

for asking me to participate in the “5 Day Black & White Challenge”.

The challenge is to post one (1) B&W photo a day for 5 consecutive days,

and ask someone each day to join in the fun.

For my Day 2 of the Challenge:
I would like to ask Gilly at Lucid Gypsy to share her talent.

    • This ruin is under excavation. Unfortunately, the government is not providing money to continue. The tours there are hopefully going to help. according to our guide. He was a descendant of the Mayans. He spoke to us their native language while we were on our 2 hour bus ride to this ruin. The bus did have mild air conditioning. 😳
      My husbands grandfather was an archeologist so we enjoy going to these ruins. Chichen Itza was a great one. 😊
