Punta de Chimino is considered one of the last capitals of the Petexbatún regime occupied by the Maya elite of the late classic period. It contains important structures like a Temple with False Arch Vault, Large Platforms and an Important Ball Game. It was a peninsula that was excavated to become an artificial island in order to protect itself from neighboring enemies.
