We stayed at Live Aqua and noticed this while walking on the beach (it was very close to Live Aqua) so we decided to check it out! It was a great photo opportunity and it was pretty awesome to see this piece of history! So...More

Interesting site, but no direct access from the street. You need to go several blocks past, and access the beach at the fire station (Bomberos), then walk up the beach half a kilometre back towards the hotel in front of it.

A neat remnant of Mayan architecture. Sad to think the remainder of some of these structures are probably under the hotels. Easy walk from any of the hotels on the strip.

If you are staying at the Westin Lagunamar this ruin is practically on the Westin property and has a trail for easy access. Worth a quick half hour visit. I would not plan an excursion around this ruin, but if walking by or over at...More

There is nothing to write that hasn't already been written... except the view and that it's free. Amid all the tourist hotels and traps is this one little bit of history with a great view of the beach and ocean. Not to be missed...

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.

This was fun to walk up and was on the property where we stayed. It was in between Park Royal and The Westin, so there were guests from both properties checking it out. While the ruin itself is cool to walk up and look at,...More

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.
