About the Sanctuary with Mayan Vestiges

Chococacao Maya was a populated area for rest and preparation on the outskirts of Cobá that is preserved to this day. Now it is a Sanctuary of Cacao and Honey. Where today we continue to meet to connect with the past, the Mayan culture and enjoy its flavors. We have a Sacbé and we have a beautiful Cenote.

History of Chococacao Maya

The ancient Mayans used it as a place of rest and purification here they prepared before reaching the sacred site of the great Pyramid of Cobá, one of the great Mayan cities of the classical period (200 to 900 AD). Cobá began as a small town, but it was gaining commercial importance that led it to dominate the area.

Sacbes de Coba

It was such an important city that it had at least 16 Sacbe (white road) that connected it with the most important cities or temples in the region, among them there is a Sacbé that directly connects with the Pyramid of Chichén Itzá
