El Rey is in the hotel zone with easy access by the local bus system. It is the ruins of a Mayan fishing village and is a great place for young children to run a bit and see lots of iguanas. Usually there is someone...More
If you’re looking for a quick 30 minute walk this is it. It is a self guided tour and there are only a couple of placards at some of the structures that are still partly in tact. If you want a guide or to see...More
This is a great little ruin. It clearly showed the architecture of the Mayans and was not extremely crowded. I was able to take pictures without other people in them. There were lots of iguanas basking in the sun!
We stayed on the strip and all our children are under 10. This was the best option for them without a several hour bus ride.
Kids loved seeing the Iguanas. Price was reasonable and there are many transport options to get there.

Coming from the airport, it's to the left (opposite the ocean) about a kilometer or so before you start to see hotels. I walked there from the Royal Islander resort. It's near Playa Delfines and the Cancun block letters that people take pictures in front of. There is good signage for it, so you will see where it is when you drive into the hotel zone from the airport. Hope that's helpful!
