AAA Editor Notes
Chicanná ruins are about 2 km (1.2 mi.) w. of Becán on the s. side of the highway; a short road leads to the site. They stand within an enticing grove of tropical trees and other vegetation. The buildings are a mix of Río Bec and Chenes architectural styles. Most notable is Structure II, which stands in the main plaza. It features elaborate carvings and a huge doorway fashioned after the jaws of a monster's open mouth, complete with stone teeth. Other buildings include a twin-towered temple and Structure XX, which also has a monster mouth doorway.
