Just OK, it was acrossed our Hotel so we went there as I mentioned in my other reviews it was raining so we had to do as much as we could indoors, I defo won´t do it again
Be prepared to deal with hordes of iguanas. If you bring bread or cereal from your hotel you can feed them, they are pretty aggressive and will surround you to try and get food if you are not careful, my son and I liked it but my wife and daughter thought it was a little creepy.
The El Rey Ruins are located within the hotel zone in Cancun. I've visited them a few times over the years. It's nice to be able to experience the history without spending a lot of time and/or money to take a day trip. Obviously they are much smaller than Tulum and Chichen Itza but you still get a feel for... More
This is a Mayan archaeological site in the hotel zone. US Dollars are accepted, although not advertised as such, and they charge you more if you want to use a videocamera. I think I paid about $5 US per person. The hotel zone buses stop right out front. This is a nice place to take young kids to run around.... More
It was a short walk from the hotel and amazingly peaceful. Without having to go far, we got to climb some Mayan ruins and see lots of iguanas. It was a nice change of pace.

3 or 4 USD admission, not at all crowded, be sure to take some soft tacos to feed the Iguanas !! I believe that guided tours are available as well.
This hidden gem is located right in the hotel zone. This was our third visit and our two sons highlight of the vacation. We stayed right across the street at the Crown Paradise Hotel so it was an easy walk. Our two sons ages 7 and 9 really love El Rey, not only is it educational but it is fun... More
