Bolonchen or Bolonchen de Rejón is a town in Campeche State, Mexico, about 120 km west from the city of Campeche.
Most of the carved stone on the ancient structures was removed in the 18th century through the mid 20th century for reuse in modern construction.
A short distance to the south of Bolonchen are the caves of Xtacunbilxunan.
