Part of the excitement of a visit to Cancún is its accessibility to
a world gone by. Remains of the ancient Maya civilization are
scattered throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. Some, like the temple
at the Westin Lagunamar are right in Cancún. Others, like Chichén
Itzá and Ek-Balam are in the neighboring state of Yucatan, just a
couple hours’ drive from the Hotel Zone. All hold the secrets of a
fascinating culture, known the world over for its illustrious
achievements in art, architecture and science.
