We decided to go see this one Sunday morning. We had visited chichen itza a few days before. This place is lovely we were the only people there. The temple is surrounded by 3 plazas and in each is a s... more »

We loved these Ruins. It was less touristy and off the beaten path. The grounds were nice and we enjoyed walking around. We parked across the street and walked in. The cost was low and they had clean ... more »

Ce site est un peu excentré mais on y arrive quand même facilement en taxis et/ou en bus.

A small archaeological site by the sea, and in the jungle it's something that I don't expect not. He doesn't have mine but for having visited after the site El Rey, I stay bluff by the height of the central pyramid. El Meco, small ruins that are worth the detour!

It is a small and tranquil Maya ruin built in the post Classical period. Located just a few miles north of Cancun downtown and easy to get to by taxi (150 pesos) or by the collectivo van which costs 8 pesos only from downtown. The entrance fee is 50 pesos. Five star for the lady at the ticket office who is very courteous and speaks good English.

El Meco was not a significant Mayan site but interesting none the less. It's located close to Cancun so it's easily accessible. Open from 9 to 5. I was the only visitor when I arrived at 4.

Beautiful grounds and a very manageable size. Ruins are very well preserved considering the age and give a nice, succinct glimpse of Mayan architecture and history. So glad we took a step away from the touristy resort scene for a short visit to some real Yucatan!

El Meco has a 41 feet tall pyramid surrounded by two plazas and a number of buildings in the ceremonial precinct. The site has discontinuous occupations dating to the Classic and Postclassic periods. El Meco is excellent for photography of ruins, iguanas, or both. Remember when at the entrance to photograph the site map so you can refer to it while walking the trails. According to the site map the habitation zones are outside the park boundaries to the north and east. If you seek an alternative to long bus rides to the fabulous (and crowded) Chichen Itza and Tulum sites, or have already seen them, try the El Meco, San Migeulito, and El Rey ruins in the Cancun vicinity. None of the latter three named sites are crowded.

Small and quiet. A nice stop to see ruins
