El Rey Archaeological Site

  • Boulevard Kukulcán, 77500 Cancún, Q.R., Cancun, QR 77500

overview

El Rey is one of the most important archaeological sites on Cancun. Although it originated as a small settlement in early times, it was not until the Late Postclassic period (1200 - 1550 A.D.) that it reached its most important stage of growth. According to research, it is believed that El Rey, along with nearby San Miguelito, formed the core area of a settlement dedicated to maritime trade and fishing activities.
