My wife and I visited Yamil Lu'um twice. The first time, we visited in the afternoon and were ran off by the iguanas. The next day, I got up early and walked around with no problem. I took my wife back and there were larger iguanas, but I made her see it. Through the heat, it was a nice visit... More

Small Mayan ruin by the Westin Lagunamar. Not much to see as far as the ruin goes, but has a great view of the ocean. Also, inhabited by numerous iguanas. The Westin offers an experience where you can feed the iguanas

People love the view at Tulum but this is a beautiful view of the Sea from the highest perch in Cancun. Was a Temple and has some beautiful columns, walls are still strong Alters still apparent and steps in good condition. Seems like it may have been a maritime landmark. Stop by the Westin for entrance. They are spectacular there.

This ruin is also known as Scorpions Temple. Walk into the front lobby of the Westin Hotel. Tell the staff you would like to see it. You'll walk through the lobby and to your left is the remains. Inside the lobby to your right is a display as well.

Perched upon what is said to be the highest point in Cancun, is an ancient Mayan ruin, Yamil Lu'um. Probably the best thing about this ruin, is its proximity to the Caribbean Sea. You can see it from the beach, and walk a few steps to its platform for an up close look. It is a very small sample of... More
