Tulum Mayan Ruins Day Tour

The Mayan city of Tulum is located 81 miles south of Cancun. On this Tulum tour, you'll travel to a historic Mayan city full of interesting history. The only Mayan city built on a coast, Tulum offers spectacular ocean views paired with impressive ruins. A limestone wall of over 2,500 feet surrounds three parts of the ancient city. Prepare for an experience unlike anything you've had before.

Begin your Tulum tour with a scenic 45-minute ferry ride to gorgeous Playa del Carmen. A comfortable air-conditioned bus awaits your arrival in this lovely city, ready to transport you on a picturesque ride to the Tulum Mayan Ruins. Approximately two hours are provided in Tulum, plenty of time to explore the restored temples rising above the Caribbean Sea. A professional guide will explain the facts, myths, and fascinating legends of the Ancient Mayan culture that once dominated the area.

Enter the Tulum ruins through one of five doorways in the massive limestone wall. A lush field of smooth hills welcomes you, decorated with detailed stone-carved figures and the remains of what were once striking buildings. Notable highlights include El Castillo (The Castle), perched on the edge of the 2,500-ft. wall and overlooking the Caribbean Sea; the Temple of Frescoes, one of the most preserved buildings remaining; The Temple of the Descending God, and The House of the Columns. After your time in the Tulum Mayan Ruins, you'll hop back on your bus, return to Playa del Carmen, and enjoy a ferry ride back to Cozumel.

The Tulum Mayan Ruins are extremely photogenic. Plenty of memorable snapshots are yours to take on this unforgettable Cozumel cruise excursion. Book today as part of your next great vacation!

We were observing our 50th Anniversary. Our entire family LOVED the excursion!! Unfortunately my husband and I were not able to enjoy the excursion because we were ill that day, so we missed out on the fun, regrettably. Maybe next time we can visit Tulum. Everyone loved it!

Reviewer: Sally Dye
We really enjoyed this tour. There were only five of us on the trip. The water was rough on the ferry ride, that's for sure, and one of our group was ill. We had a great guide who met us at the ferry and accompanied us throughout the trip. We had a separate guide at the ruins (Carlos) who was excellent. Nice trip with lots of walking. We were lucky it was not hot and sunny. And no bugs. We'd do it again and definitely recommend this shore excursion to others.

Excellent tour and tour guide. Made sure everyone knew where to be and provided bottled water and,after the long walk, boxed lunch -which was much appreciated. Guide within ruins was extremely knowledgeable.

We had a great time. The ruins and our guide (her name was J) was wonderful. We also got to stop at several grocery stores to look around and purchase local fare. Well worth the money.
