The El Rey Mayan Ruins can be found on an impressive archaeological site in the popular Hotel Zone in Cancun. It features 47 edifices believed to have been put into use by the Mayans since around 900 AD. The name of the ruins is attributed to that of a ceremonial mask and skull in honor of the Mayan Sun God which was discovered on the site. The Hilton Resorts Golf Course is surprisingly situated in the neighborhood of the ruins.

Here you can also notice two main platforms and temples that are thought to be what were left of ancient market locations and religious ceremonial structures. Among the main attractions at the El Rey Ruins are the fearless iguanas that can be seen strolling about with visitors nearby. The presence of these iguanas, which are looked after by park guides, explain the popularity of the ruins. This is given that fact that these ruins are not as significant in size as Chichen Itza.

The El Rey Ruins, being located in the vicinity of the southern Hotel Zone lagoon, are ideally positioned for visitors to relish nice views of the Hotel Zone and the Nichupte Lagoon. These ruins give you the opportunity to conveniently have a feel of the ancient Mayan ruins without having to travel to a farther location to do so.
