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. 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.

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!

5 StarsTurn Key ExperienceMay 13, 2019

Reviewer: Mary Snow
This opportunity, had the entire experience mapped out with time frames that left us with ample time to experience the shopping in Cozumel. The confirmation said to meet a representative under a statue of the swallows. My group gets there, we walk up to the statue and there is a guy holding a clipboard with my name on it! The ferry was a bit rough that day but was comfortable inside and made it there quickly. We met an air conditioned bus and headed to the Ruins. Once there, we had a great guide who spoke perfect English and really went into great detail about not only the ruins, but the society and class structure that once inhabited it. Once he was done he told us how to get back to our bus. We had lunch waiting for us on the bus for the ride back to the pier. I like Subway, so lunch was easy to eat and familiar! I took plenty of pictures and will remember our experience using this excursion service as very easy and "Turn Key" meaning, once we showed up, they took care of us.

The Mayan Ruins of Tulum tour was a great experience, especially that we have never seen Ruins before. The group meeting location was easy to find, even though we had to take a taxi to the meeting area. The Ruins are by the sea, with lots of beautiful view and very historic.

Guides were all awesome. Get off ship and head over to the ferry port. Ferry ride to and from was good. Was a bit rushed as we didn’t have any time to shop in Cozumel at all. Off the ship and on excursion until it was time to board ship practically. We could have shopped a bit before but worried about being late and we didn’t leave when they said. Didn’t have time to swim in Tulum. Could have taken less stuff with us. We did put our feet in. Informative guide Patricio in Tulum. Ruben was other guide of the day. Thumbs up.

Reviewer: Shannon Bauck
We found the Mayan ruins very interesting. It was easy to find the tour after getting off the ship, and we got started right away. It is a longer tour and one couple bowed out when hearing it would take up most of their day. After a ferry ride and then a car ride, we arrived and were given to a Mayan guide who gave us a tour. Beautiful scenery from the ruins too. We appreciated the Subway sandwhiches as a quick lunch.
