Located in the Sian Ka´an Biosphere, this site, at which numerous subterranean chambers have been found, has a very different feel from other Mayan sites in the Yucatan. The architecture, with rounded edges on its pyramid and other buildings, and its proximity to protected Caribbean waters makes it an interesting contrast in comparison to some of the more exacting architecture of the inland sites.

One can arrange for a guide or take a boatride to see other ancient Mayan sites on the lagoon. Floating gently through canals that have been used for over 2,000 years, one envies the ancient Maya who once inhabited this unusually tranquil place.
