There are so many Mayan ruins near Cancun. We went to Chichen Itza and saw the large site that is only partially uncovered at this time. Since we were staying in Cancun, we couldn't miss seeing Yamil Lu'um, the ruin on the coast. From the...More

For those willing to venture to El Centro, this place is great. A family owned business located on Ave. Nadir which is an upcoming restaurant district. Small with only eight tables, but friendly staff and really tasty food. Our dinner included salad, appetizer, and two...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.

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.
