Xpujil Ruins, Campache, Mexico:

The three sites; Xpujil, Becán, & Chicanná are easy sites to visit of the Rio Bec Region located in the Mexican State of Campache on the Yucatán Peninsula. There are many others but they are not easily seen by tourists.

A word about the Río Bec Region. The words Río Bec refer to a style of the temple pyramids which are located in the central Maya lowlands. The temple-pyramids are characterized by a unique architectural style that began to appear during the seventh century A.D. and continued into the early twelfth century A.D. The temple - pyramids usually have what is called a range-type of building with a similar looking, nonfunctional tower; on each of the opposit ends of the range-type building. As the height of the twin towers increases, the twin towers narrow; giving the illusion of being greater in height than they actually are. In addition, the twin-towers appear to have stairs along their faces leading to the temple that rests atop them. However, the steps are only a design motif that creates the illusion of functional stairs. The temples, which appear to be located on the singular platform at the top each of the Río Bec towers are solid masses of design stone, with no interior rooms, so they are inoperative as well. Also, there are Pseudo-doorways, built into niches, located at the fronts of the temples, giving the temple the appearance of having a functional door. The purpose of the Río Bec temple-pyramids is unknown at this time. But, they are pretty!

Xpujil means Place of the Cattails in Maya. It was named by the members of the fourth Carnegie Expedition to Campeche, in 1938. It is a A small site that flourished between 400 B.C. and 1100 A.D.

Some archaeologists think that Xpujil was a subordinate community of the larger site at Becán. In fact you can see Xpujil from Becan and you could walk between the two sites if you were so inclined. Becán is East of Xpujil. We do not recommend walking there.

We found Structure 1 of Group 1 at Xpujil to be a beautiful example of the Rio Bec style.

We found the South Tower to be very interesting. It contains a stairway that leads up to the top of the tower to a room with a window that faces to the West.

The Ing. Alberto Acuña Ongay International Airport (IATA: CPE, ICAO: MMCP), also known as Campeche International Airport, is the international airport located in Campeche, Campeche, Mexico. It handles the national and international air traffic of the city of Campeche. It's operated by Aeropuertos y Servicios Auxiliares, a federal government-owned corporation.

There are several good hotels or motels in the Campeche area, and if you need a place to stay; Priceline.com can arrange that for you. In fact, we think they are the best way to do it!

We also have links on this page, that will connect you directly with several of the best hotels in in the Campeche area. Hotels that we have personally used!

We suggest getting a hotel, and then letting them arrange for either a car, or a tour of the Campeche area and/or the Río Bec Region. If you call their Concierge Services, ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We have used this method, many times, when traveling in Mexico. We have found it to be safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem, doing it this way!

Our first choice for exploring this region (only due to their location) is the Chicanna Ecovillage Resort at Xpujil. It is an OK place to stay but, don't expect a 5 star rating hotel. Their staff is not known to be helpful. There are no other nice places to stay in this central location. Hotels that are higher rated are only found in Campeche.

We have personally, booked flights, hotels, and vacations, through Priceline.com and we can highly recommend them. Their website is very easy to use!

We have some links to Priceline.com on this page, since they can arrange all of your air flights, hotels and car.

We of course, appreciate your use of the advertising on our pages, since it helps us to keep our pages active.
