Hochob means "place where corn is stored" in Maya.

The buildings at Hochob date from the Late Classic and are grouped around a small plaza.

On the north side of the plaza is Structure II, the Principal Palace at Hochob and an exemplar of Chenes monster-mouth temples.
On the west is Structure I, a building similar to Structure II but much less intact.
To the south are Structures V and VI, pyramidal structures with small semi-functional temples at the top.
