About 70 metres south of the House of the Cenote, the Temple of the Wind stands proudly above a natural rise on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea. There is a single room, with its entrance facing to the north, and built up on a rectangular platform with rounded edges. It is accessed by a stairway rising up from a low platform, that in turn is reached by a couple of steps to the pathway. To the immediate left of the main stairway there is one of four small shrines that functioned as sacred sites for the performance of rituals.
Inside the Temple of the Wind are the remains of an altar while on its roof, there are pieces of sculpture in poor condition. This structure is associated with Ehecatl Quetzalcoatl, god of the wind, since the rounded edges of the platform facilitate the passage of air.
