This tour allows you a more extensive look at the magnificent, multileveled, famous Mayan ruin best known for its Temple of the Masks.

Begin your excursion at the pier and travel with your guide to the Kohunlich ruins. Along the way, you will learn about the site and the history of this fascinating area. Upon arrival, you will embark on a guided exploration through this breathtaking site that is named after the majestic cahoon palm tree that grows fronds up to 40-ft. tall. The park-like setting includes a sunken palace, acropolis, ball court and courtyards but the main attraction is the masks!

Take the opportunity to climb the pyramid-like temple to get a great view of the unique 10-ft. high sculpted masks of the Sun God "Kinich Ahau" that run up each side of the stairways. Built before 500 A.D., these marvelous masks still retain some of their original colored stucco. Kohunlich's broad range of architecture, natural beauty and expansive, uncrowned seclusion set it apart from the more widely toured sites.

After a visit of approximately 2 1/2 hours, you will rejoin your coach and make your way to the Lagoon Club for a tasty lunch of regional favorites before returning to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes a considerable amount of walking over uneven and rough surfaces. Care should be taken as the surfaces can be slippery. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not considered suitable for those with mobility concerns.
