Archaeologists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) found hidden in the jungle of southern Quintana Roo an ancient Mayan city. His name is Noh Kah and is an urban area comprising more than 34 hectares, in which at least six groups of buildings erected between the Classic Period Early and Late Classic Period are located, as shown by the organization and form of the mounds.

The main finding of this archaeological site is the Paredón, a coated stone wall that runs up between 250 and 600 AD, from which hung lianas whose shape but warned the presence of a city “eaten by the jungle.” However, even this vestige denotes the importance of the site, it is a year after the first boom that over 1,500 years ago construction.

Noh Kah means “big city” and was proposed by Botes ejidatarios-Rivorosa name. It belongs to the area of the bank of Hondo River, adjacent to Belize, where huge areas like Kohunlich Dzibanché and extend. Therefore, this discovery could provide archaeologists new knowledge about the influence of the Kaan dynasty in this area, which is known too occupy other cities such as Calakmul.

Although further extension of this metropolis is unknown (whose study is difficult to mapping techniques tech due to the exuberance of the jungle), the settlement pattern is similar to other sites south of Quintana Roo that stand out for the nuclear separation cities area. Architectural groups are found far away by between 0.5 and 3 km, and were named Corozal, The Pich (thought it was the place where political power was exercised), The Paredón, The Pocito, Hop Na and the Twenty, where a pyramidal base is recognized.

Among the main features of Noh Kah is orographic use of the area allowed to convert terraced slopes. This is the same condition that hindered their discovery over a thousand years.
