The Mayan word Sak Bé means "white road" in Spanish. The pre-Hispanic stone paths are thus called because their surface was covered with white powder or with a floor, whose finish was that color.
Sak Bé No. 2 is one of the two pre-Hispanic roads that give access to the site from the south side; the other is Sak Bé No. 1.
This section of the road has an extension of 190 meters to the outer wall and is 10 meters wide, however, in the intermediate part between the two walls it is wider and forms a kind of terrace.
The pre-Hispanic roads fulfilled an important function for the ancient Mayans, as they facilitated communication and commercial and social relations, they were also a symbol of the importance of some cities with greater economic and political power, over others that were under their dominion.
