What To Expect

The original location founded in this area was named Nohcacab and was inhabited during the Classic Maya period from 600 to 1000 A.D. At the conquest an encomienda, that is a tribute-paying small community with an ethnically mixed population which included Spanish people, criollos, mestizos and mulattos, was established. In the early 1840s, the explorer John Lloyd Stephens used this small community as a base from which he and his companions departed to explore the Puuc area, thanks to this fact we still have detailed accounts about the people of Nohcacab and their culture, as well as drawings showing how these visitors perceived the village at that time.
