Our room at the Westin Lagunamar overlooked this small ruin so how could we not go! Cancun is pretty much devoid of ancient history so having a small ruin like this is a good way to anchor yourself in what this region once was. Its...More

For the tourists who just want a small sample of a Mayan ruin, this one is easy especially for Westin guests. It is right next to the property. Watch out not to step on resident iguanas.

It was wonderful to have this right on our hotel property. Very educational and we didn't even have to travel miles to see it. Recommend to anyone that likes history.

The ruin is small but in a good shape. Especially nice that it locates right on a beach and by the hotels. You can easily get there by a local bus. No tour required and it is free to visit.

These ruins were right next to our hotel. It's small, but free and you can climb up to the top, so we enjoyed it. I would recommend it if you are staying nearby.

Super small ruins with 1 sign that has a general explanation of the ruin. Overall, it was cool to see. However, definitely small. We did see 2 iguanas after some searching. Getting there was kind of a pain. It looked like the only access was...More

Right on the beach at the Westin Laguna Mar. It's small, but it is still interesting. Lots of iguanas make this place home, it must be because of the beautiful view of the beach and ocean!
