MERIDA – The museum being built in the archaeological zone of Kabah, located in the municipality of Santa Elena, will “narrate” the history of the ancient Maya of the Puuc Route.

The archaeological zone of Kabah is a majestic pre-Columbian city dedicated to Chaac, the Mayan god of rain, and is located in southern Yucatan.

Where is the Puuc Route located?

The Puuc Route, which in Mayan language means mountain range, includes the communities of Uxmal, Kabah, Sayil, Labná, Xlapak, Chacmultún and the Loltún Caves.

“The Puuc Archaeological Museum, which is being built in Kabah with resources from the Archaeological Zones Improvement Program (Promeza) derived from the Maya Train, will be a driver of tourism in the region,” said José Arturo Chab Cárdenas, director of the INAH Yucatán Center.
