Chacchoben - Las Vasijas Excavation

Chacchoben is a Mayan ruin on the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula. It is southwest of the cruise port of Costa Maya. In the Mayan language, Chacchoben means: The Place of Red Corn. The cultural peak of the city was in 700 AD, when most of the construction of buildings and temples occurred. The site opened for tourism quite recently in 2002. I visited the site in November 2017 on a cruise excursion from Costa Maya. This is Las Vasijas, the smallest of the site's three temples. At the back of the temple, you can see where they have removed part of the outer temple exposing an earlier temple that was built over.
