Modern history the site started in the mid 40's when Mr. Serviliano Cohuo, a young Maya man looking for the best land to settle down decided to start his farm in the area. Time passed and over the years the ruins of the ancient city of Chacchoben, became the backyard of Mr. Cohuo and his family.
Today Chacchoben, still keeps most of its secrets covered with vegetation offering visitors a unique opportunity to experience its magic and feel the energy of an ancient city in ruins.
The surrounding jungle is characterized by abundant species of fauna such as, deer, peccary, armadillo, gray fox, spider monkey and howler monkey.
Going deeper into the jungle it's possible to find more dangerous animals like jaguar, ocelot, puma and tapir.

David and Ivan,
Thanks again for a truly memorable time together last week at Chacchoben. The site is impressive, but the highlight came when you shared your kowledge and insights about the Mayan people. Mayans hold a special place in our hearts and we have done much research to learn as much as we can, but I know we learned far more about what a Mayan truly is, by speaking with you.
