Scorpion's Temple

Cancun's highest peak is home to an ancient ruin site called Yamil Lu'um. Dated back to the 13th to 16th centuries, specifically between the years of 1200 to 1550, this small set of ruins once contained two structures: likely a lighthouse and a temple.

This wonder of archaeology was discovered in 1842. Yamil Lu'um sits atop a sandy knoll between the Westin Lagunamar and Park Royal in the Hotel Zone. While they're the smallest Mayan ruins on the island, visitors can clearly see the still standing walls of the temple.

Perfect for sightseeing or a relaxing picnic, this activity provides little else. But be aware of the resident black iguanas to avoid having unexpected lunch companions.
