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.

I had not realized that I was booking a tour that was not affiliated with the cruise line. Any money saved by booking this excellent tour was lost by having to be first off ship and having to take a cab to meet our tour. We were the only 2 on tour. Others did not show. We had a 45 minute trip to island. Then were walked to a bus, 45 minute bus ride to ruins,however, bus was fairly new . No narration till we got to ruins where we had an excellent tour guide explain the area to us. We got excellent background history of ruins . It was like having a professor take you around. After our quick tour we went back to ferry earlie so we wouldn't worry about being late for the ship. We had subway for lunch and drinks were provided. Was sorry to see the ruins had become so touristy since our last visit. Staff was great. Hadn't realized we had not booked a ship tour .
It was an excellent tour. Our guide coordinator met us and arranged for our transport to the Ruins. He showed us where the bathrooms were and arranged for us to meet him there after the tour. He even let us sit in the vans early so we could get out of the heat. The water taxis were well coordinated. The sandwich, water, and soda were a nice surprise. This tour group is an excellent service!

We booked tour thru American Airlines and were so well taken care of. We meet Earnesto at the assigned place and he took such good care of us, always where we could find him, plus feed us a great lunch and a very pleasant bus ride to the ruins. The guide in the ruins was not really very informative about where we were, but gave lots of background history!
