Mayan Ruins of Tulum in Cozumel, Mexico
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. Of all the shore excursions and tours to Tulum, this is one you don’t want to miss.
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. If time permits, you may have the opportunity to check out the beach located behind the ruins and take a relaxing swim. 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 loved that this was a small group tour of Tulum (only about 15 people). I wish there had been a little more time at the site, though. There was an hour tour and then we had about 45 minutes to take pictures or go down to the beach. We chose to take pictures since there hadn’t really been time for that during the tour, but it would have been nice to have had time to head down to the beach as well.

My friend and I went on this shore excursion in late October. We had a great day, thanks to our tour leader and guide. We found the day to be very well organized, we were met immediately when we arrived at the gathering place and shortly thereafter boarded the ferry and were off. Our guide had more information than time at the ruins and gave us tons of interesting information about the Mayans and Tulum. We were able to compare this tour with one we did in Jamaica, and this was far superior. I would highly recommend this outing for anyone who will be in the area and looking for a fun way to spend a day!

Our guide was nothing short of awesome. He had everything we needed ready to go, great personality, super informative and we had a great time. He teased us saying we were going to eat an Iguana sandwich for lunch but ended up with Subway. He let us know where to be careful and about the local area.

We had a great time on our tour of the Mayan Ruins of Tulum. We were fortunate to end up in a very small group so it really felt personalized. The tour guide was pleasant and kept us on time. The guide at the ruins was very knowledgeable of the history of the Mayans and the region. The site was fascinating. I would highly recommend this excursion.

We enjoyed the Mayan ruins of Tulum tour. We were fortunate to have a very small group (4 of us) and it made the tour much more personalized. It is a jaunt to get there between the ferry and the bus ride, but it was worth the trip. The ruins in Tulum are very well excavated, giving you a good picture of life there when it flourished. The beach was too crowded for us to go down there but the views were amazing. We were able to do a little shopping there before we made the journey back. Lunch was Subway, good - but not a local experience. Our guide was very pleasant and kept us on time without making us feel rushed. I can definitely recommend this tour.
