It is located in one of the largest ecological tropical forest reservations in MÃ©xico. With approximately 723 thousand hectares, it is situated in the region of PetÃ©n, Campeche, 30 kilometers away of the Mexico-Guatemala border. This region shares with the Guatemalan PetÃ©n not only similar characteristics of flora, fauna and orography, but also an architectural style characterized by buildings erected on large basal platforms, capped with vaulted precincts. The ornamentation of structures, based on modeled and polychrome stucco, visu
