  • The Scopion's Temple is located between Park Royal and the Westin. We stayed at the Park Royal and could walk from the pool to the site. Not allot of info was provided but I always enjoy seeing histor...  more »
  • This Mayan Temple is one of the countless buildings that the ancient Maya built on the coastline of the Mexican State of Quintana Roo from the impressive walled city of Tulum and northwards buildings are located on Tankah; Pole (Xcaret); Xaman Ha (Playa del Carmen); The King, San Miguelito and Takul Villas in Cancun to the Meco front of Isla Mujeres, to name just a few. Possibly these structures relate to coastal surfing carrying out to make trade and religious pilgrimages, unfortunately the Temple of the Scorpion has been ¨encajonado¨ by the two hotels that flank it. Formerly the Sheraton Hotel (now demolished) respected space for the temple and had access to the public from Kukulcan Boulevard. The Westin lagunamar built rather than the Sheraton disrespectfully invaded the space of this archaeological site. The hotel does not allow free access from the street (which is illegal) but if you walk on the beach can do it without any problem. It is a small temple but it does make us reflect on the importance of the Mayan culture which left evidence scattered throughout the Yucatan Peninsula

  • This ruin is small, is free to the public, but can be reached walking on the beach, from the public to the site entrance are at least 3 kilometers and that seems to me to be extensive, as well as you walk along the beach hotels who have occupied part of it let you walk if they be not outside the limits that will make me very short free beach. In order for the photo is a very nice place with height by which appreciates the beauty of the sea in Cancun
