AAA Editor Notes
Xpujil ruins are about 72 km (45 mi.) w. of Kohunlich, on the n. side of the highway just past the village of Xpujil. Xpujil (sh-pooh-HEEL), which means “place of the cattails” in the Mayan language, flourished between A.D. 400 and 900. The largest building at the site consists of three towers that once had steep ornamental stairways extravagantly decorated with jaguar masks; traces of its former grandeur remain.
