El Rey was a five minute walk from our hotel. We walked the site with our 13 and 9 year old girls. We all loved it. It took about an hour to walk the ruins. It was a great way to experience some Mayan history without booking an expensive excursion that takes all day. There were lots of Iguanas hanging around too. The cost is only about $2 USD per person. We also walked to the Mayan Museum. The museum is small but is worth the $3 USD to look around. Plus there are more ruins behind the museum with the remains of a large temple. The museum is about a 1 1/2 miles walk from El Rey but a bonus is you walk by the big CANCUN sign which is a nice photo op.
My 4 star rating is only because we kept wanting to know what each structure was and there were no descriptions.
