The sight was named after the ceremonial mask and skull that were discovered at the site that honored the Mayan sun god, as ensuing excavations have piqued speculation about the history of these great ruins. Granted these are not as large as other main ruins of the Mayan culture that has been discovered in other parts of the country and as well as those countries in Central America, but the iguanas that have settled here seem to bring visitors in the throngs to come here and take picture after picture of these unique creatures that can be feed while you are there and are a great show in themselves.

The major development of this ancient Mayan city is believed to have been during the period between 1300 and 1550 AD, just before the Spanish invaders arrived, with the main activates being fishing and trading with salt. It would be abandoned in the 16th century after the Spaniards arrived, and would become a haven for pirates for many years because of its excellent location by the sea. There aren't any pyramids here, but the 47 buildings they do have are excellent opportunities to explore and find interesting.
