Kohunlich is about 9 kilometers south of highway 186 between Chetumal and Xpuhil, about 60 kilometers from Chetumal. The road is about 1.5 lanes but has giant craters as potholes, car swallowing. There is a short 100 meter walk to the site from the entrance. Good walkways around the site, mostly in the shade. The site has several structures around the central plaza with the largest pyramids, still small by Mayan standards. Back more in the forest is a ball court and a variety of residential structures, mostly low. There is a good view from the back of the last one at the end of the 27 steps. The site is most famous for several large stucco heads which are visible under some temporary roofs lining the central steps at the Pyramid of the Masks. This site is heavily visited by tour groups, 6 buses by 10 AM when we were there Cost is 55 pesos with free parking. Toilets but no refreshments.
