Located on the western edge of the like-named town , Xpujil archaeological site (8 a.m.–5 p.m. daily, US$2.75) is small but well preserved.
Structure I is the most famous of the few structures that have been excavated. It has three towers—a central one that is flanked by two smaller ones—and several false staircases. Built in classic Río Bec style, it is extraordinary because of the number of towers—most temples in the region only have two.
On the back of the central tower, check out what’s left of two huge stylized masks. The remaining buildings, Structures II–IV are believed to have been aristocratic residences.
