Dzibanché Archaeological Site

Quintana Roo

Dzibanché is the name given to the largest settlement of the architectural group, surprising due to its extension (more than 24.8 miles2 (40 km2)), the beauty of its enormous constructions, and the natural environment where it is located. It consists of four groups: Dzibanché or Main Group, Central Complex or Lamay Group, Tutil, and Kinichná.

Of the four major architectural groups, Dzibanché and Tutil have a very extensive construction sequence; the other two seem to have operated for a shorter period: Kinichná in the first half of the Classic period, and Lamay in the latter part of the same period.

In addition to its rich history and majestic structures, Dzibanché is located along the route of the Mayan Train, that connect various tourist destinations and archaeological sites on the Yucatan Peninsula.
