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 ruins were spectacular. Our tour guide inside the walls was very good and kept us cool. We learned so much. The tour is exhausting since you have to walk to the boat to find your guide, take the boat, take a bus and then go to the ruins but it was worth it. I wish our guide that got us to the ruins gave us some narration. He got us there safe and sound and gave us lunch but he did talk at all during our tour.I would have liked to hear about that area of Mexico

The only bad thing I can say was the walk from the ship was a bit long, but the excursion was well worth it. The guide at the ruin was very informative and the park was fantastic. The drivers were very good and even stopped to let us buy pineapple along side the road.
This tour was excellent and very informative. Our guides were wonderful and it was so nice being in a small group!
We loved this excursion. Ferry ride and trip in van were comfortable. Guides were great. Trip was the right amount of time to see everything and visit the shopping area.
Guides were excellent. The whole day was very informing and trip was excellent because of the tour guides. We couldn't have asked for a better day.
