Ichkabal, ancient city in Quintana Roo, to open in 2018

Share This

This Mayan city is larger than Chichén Itzá and Uxmal, which are known for their vast territories.

BACALAR, Q. Roo — Its name is Ichkabal, it was discovered only 10 years ago, and it is located 40 kilometers to the west of Laguna de Bacalar, Quintana Roo. Due to its broad architecture and the fact that it was completely unknown and well-preserved for centuries, it has been a monumental task to rescue. Fortunately enough, in 2018 it will open its doors to the public for the first time.

It consists of 5 main buildings; two of them are 40 meters-tall. Likewise, this ancient city is extremely important since it was inhabited during all the Mayan period; vestiges have been found in its interior, which go from 1000 BC to 320 AD. Surprinsingly, there is evidence that Ichkabal was inhabited until 900 AD, a time period during which it is believed there was a massive abandonment of Mayan cities.

This mysterious architectural place is a subject of great interest for both researchers and documentalists. Being such the excitement, next year National Geographic will dedicate a special episode to this recently-found ancient Mayan city.
