Fodor's Review

The archaeological site of Oxkintoc (osh-kin-tok)—located 5 km (3 miles) east of Maxcanú, off Carretera 180—contains the ruins of an important Mayan capital that dominated the region from about AD 300 to 1100. Little was known about it until excavations began here in 1987. Structures that have been excavated so far include two tall pyramids and a palace with stone statues of several ancient rulers.
