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!

The Mayan Ruins of Tulum excursion was a wonderful experience that I would highly recommend. The tour guide was very attentive and made sure we had no issues getting there and back and had a nice lunch waiting for us after our tour. I had read previous reviews and would suggest you pack a snack and water to get you through to lunch. We did have to take a 15 minute cab ride from the ship to the meeting location that was not part of the tour cost. Try to find out how much the cab ride should cost before leaving from your port (there are 3 ports with different distances from the meeting location) - we paid double getting there from when we returned so a lesson learned. We packed swim suits and towels but there's not enough time to go in the water so I would suggest not taking them unless you don't mind carrying the extra weight. We did leave them on the bus for the actual tour but there's a boat ride to get there and walking to get to the bus.
Although the time spent on road was as much as that of visiting the ruins, Tulum was worth that.

Our tour guide was Raul who was fantastically knowledgeable about mayanIndian history and even drew maps on the ground in the sand. It was very very interesting especially the part where the women bound their infants heads with straps so that the baby heads would be hardened into a point shape The beach at the end was very beautiful and you felt like you were on a movie set up it was so pretty

I highly recommend this Mayan Ruins tour. It was very educational and an experience to remember. Wear your walking shoes and be ready to take pictures along the way! The tour guides went above and beyond.
