Ruinas del Rey

Oddly, these ruins are located in the middle of the busiest area of Cancun. Yet the Ruinas del Rey are here, and are able to maintain a peaceful aurora. Visitors can leisurely explore the ruins as well as feed the iguanas that now inhabit it.


These ruins are small, but are part of a large archaeological conservation sight, so feel free to look around and talk to park rangers who can help you learn about Mexico's rich past.
