We've been to the larger more famous ruins. This one was only minutes from a hotel, only around $3 for entrance fee. The ruins were great and if you like iguanas you'll have a unique photo op.

A great little spot to kill some time, with amazing views.

It will only take 30mins or so to walk around, but if you are near it's worth taking the time to have a look at this piece of history - and to count how many lizards you can see

We went to the El Meco ruins Saturday morning around 9:30am and we were the only visitors there, which was great for us! The admission is 50 pesos ($2.65) for adults. Lots of shade and places to sit and enjoy the beautiful ruins. It's a quick trip from the resorts and very close to the ferry to Isla Mujeres.

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 stone tablet with information in English , Spanish and another language. This is only a small site and makes more sense of the overall concept of temple sites. Well worth the 50 pesos in.
