SO many iguana there all hiding waiting to for you. have fun its free with a donation. Very nice workers there. Lizards are happy and free. nice to see with a family, GO!
You cannot compare it to Chichen Itza but if you don't want to go so far from Cancun, visiting El Rey is a good option. Peacefully located at the end of the Hotel Zone makes it easy to access. Better to visit in the morning when the sun is still not that strong.
Visited Aug. 28. 2016 - Nice and tranquil walk through out the ruins... Employees polite and courteous.
Pretty uninteresting. Late classical, no decorations, just stone buildings. Okay for a quick visit, if you have too much time on your hands.
Place was beautiful to look at though this is not the best ruins you can see. If possible opt for chichen itza
