After the conquest, Motul was assigned to the conquistador Francisco de Bracamontes, who in his book called “Relation of Motul” indicates that it could be contemporary with Izamal and Mayapán.

Likewise, in honor of the social fighter Felipe Carrillo Puerto, born in this municipality, his name was added, officially remaining as Motul de Felipe Carrillo Puerto.
