When you visit the Mayan Museum in Cancun, your ticket will allow you to visit both the museum and the ruins inside the museum compound. We did not know that the site where the museum was erected was also an old Mayan settlement.
Go past the dragon and you'll reach the entrance to the ruins.
There's another dragon over here.
Entrance to the ruins, just follow the path.
"The archaeological site at San Miguelito Mayan Ruins was named after a coconut ranch that stood in its location in the 1950s when Cancun was a small fishing village. The original name is unknown; however, it is known that it was a mayor Maya settlement during the Late Postclasical Period of Mayan Prehispanic History (1250 – 1550 AD)."
The path is easy and settlement is not large, you can easily cover the whole thing quite quickly. However the canopied path is so relaxing that you would like to take your time, try to look up and enjoy the canopy and marvel at the beauty of the sunlight trying to pass through the cloud of leaves. On the ground level, keep an eye on the ubiquitous iguanas and stay away when two alpha males start a fight. I could not take a good shot at the iguana fight, but it was a sight to see. There's very little place to sit if you want to rest from the oppressive heat, but stay under the canopy and you'll be fine. At the end of the path stands the Pyramid. Amazing how there's a Mayan pyramid in the midst of modern day beach resorts, but this is why we love Cancun.
