The ancient city is made up of four monumental architectural groups known as Chacmultún, Cabalpak, Xethpol and Central; altogether in a one-square-kilometer area.
The first three groups, in which the visitable structures of the area are located, were built on “huitz” or hills. The terrain was flattened so that each group would be surrounded by artificial terraces that enhanced their monumentality.
Chacmultún is located 130 kilometers southeast of the city of Mérida. To get there, take 180 federal highway. Once you get to Tekax, you must head to the communities of Canek, Kancab and Chacmultún.
There are numerous platforms and mounds surrounding the heart of the settlement on which dwellings of various hierarchies were built.
