“Small Mayan Ruin”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

As part of a jeep tour this is well worth seeing. No climbing or long walk to enjoy authentic Mayan ruins! Close to lagoon where crocs are normally around and an historical lighthouse. Lear the history of this ruin and you will be impressed!

“Tiny ruin inside a park”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

This was just a small ruin inside Punta Sur Eco Park. We did see two iguanas on it while we were there, so our photos are pretty cool, but it does show the size comparison. This is very small!

“As part of larger excursion okay but wouldn't make the trip otherwise”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Saw as part of larger cruise ship (independent company) excursion. Our guide gave good information but this site pales in comparison to other Myan sites in Mexico.

“A VERY small ruin within Faro Celerain Eco Park”
Reviewed 8 April 2011

This, like the much larger building at Chichen Itza, is named for its interior spiral shape that resembles a snail or conch. This is pretty much just an incidental sight within the Punta Sur Eco Park.
