The ruin is small but in a good shape. Especially nice that it locates right on a beach and by the hotels. You can easily get there by a local bus. No tour required and it is free to visit.

Right on the beach at the Westin Laguna Mar. It's small, but it is still interesting. Lots of iguanas make this place home, it must be because of the beautiful view of the beach and ocean!
