El Rey is a small site of Mayan ruins, right in Cancun's hotel zone. The main road, Blvd. Kukulkan, is on one side of the site and the Hilton Cancun golf course is on the other. You can see a few hotels while inside the park but, standing among the ancient ruins, you'll feel like you've been transported to another time.
The archaeological site can be seen in about an hour, but it's a fun way to pass the time. Kids are not always interested in historic landmarks, such as Mayan ruins, but most little ones will love the abundance of iguanas found at El Rey.
The closest hotels to El Rey are Crown Paradise Club Cancun, Royal Solaris, and GR Solaris, but guests at other nearby hotels can walk to the park or take a very short bus or taxi ride.
