El Caracol is thought to be a Maya lighthouse built between 1200 and 1400 A.D. that also served as a hurricane warning system. Strategically placed openings whistle when the wind blows and the Maya were able to tell what type of weather was approaching. The stronger the wind, the higher the pitch.

The USD10 entrance fee includes a guided tour to the ruin.
