Lonely Planet review

This Maya ruin is the oldest on the island. It’s the size of a small house and has no ornamentation. El Cedral is thought to have been an important ceremonial site; the small church standing next to the tiny ruin today is evidence that the site still has religious significance for locals.

It's on a road off Carretera Costera Sur, between Kms 17 and 18 (you'll see a white and red arch at the turnoff, across from the Alberto's Restaurant sign).
