    Lori looking at Temple of the Wind

    This is a fantastic view looking at the Temple in the Wind way up on that high
    cliff ,it looks awsome .
    The Mayas traded their goods and the things they made with other area in the Carribean
    like Guatemala and El Salvador or else for central Mexico and other area in what are today Panama, Costa Rica and Colombia.
    Fishing boats and trading vessels arrived and departed probably from an easily accessible cove seen below between the Castle and the Temple of the Wind area .

    Temple of the Wind

    Right below El Castillo to the North there is the TEMPLO DEL VIENTO The Temple of the Wind, a small, single-roomed structure, standing on a round stone platform. It is believed to have been dedicated to Ehecatl, the god of wind.
    This incredibe sight of the temple against the turquoise waters of the Caribbean is perhaps the most photographed site of the ruins. It's simply breath-taking.

    The temple of the wind

    Left of El Castillo lies the Temple of the Wind. It's perched on a small cliff overlooking the sea. It's just a small structure, but it's standing on top of what used to be a sircular shape. Between this temple and El Castillo lies a small and beautiful white beach, but it can get a bit crowded there. Next to the temple are small mini-temples that the archeologists believes was used for offerings.

    Templo De Vientos (Temple of the Winds)

    Templo De Vientos (Temple of the Winds)

    On the north east side of El Castillo lies another great photo opportunity with the Temple of the Wind. It's also perched on a small cliff overlooking the sea. This temple was designed with special acoustics to act as a storm-warning system. Even today the temple's airways ring the alarm.
