Archaeological Site "El Rey"
The tourist zone has some minor archaeological sites, the best example of which is Ruinas El Rey located on Kukulacan Blvd. at km. 17 across from the Hilton Cancun Beach & Golf Resort. A visit to El Rey is well worth the modest entry fee. The ruins are well preserved and the sheer number of resident iguanas make for a pleasant diversion. Bilingual tour guides are available for the more inquisitive types.
A whole variety of pleasure boat cruises to the Nichupte lagoon, Isla Mujeres, Contoy Island, and other destinations are available every day from Cancun. Modern motor yachts, catamarans, trimarans, and even old time sloops take swimmers, sunbathers, snorkelers, and shoppers out into the limpid waters.
Some tours include a snorkeling stop at ecological parks, snorkeling equipment, continental breakfast, lunch, and a shopping tour. Most tours leave at 9.30 or 10am and they last about 5 to 6 hours, Sunset and night cruises, go to beaches of Isla Mujeres away from the town for pirate shows,
Caribbean shows and usually include a lobster dinner or Mexican buffet and open bar.
Cancun has its own small bull-ring near the northern end of Blvd. Kukulcan, in the downtown area. Bullfights are specially performed for the tourist and their children, it is a less shocking bullfight, not as real as they are in other cities.. The show is combined with folkloric dances, and a Mexican horse-riding charro-style performance. The show is held every
Wednesday at 3.30pm.
Nightly performances of the Ballet Folklorico de Cancun are held at the Cancun Convention Center. You can go for dinner or just for the show to enjoy the traditional Mexican Dances performed.
