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.

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 StarsGreat place to visit.January 03, 2020

Reviewer: Tim
We landed in Cozumel and took a boat to the main land and the tour picked us up and we drove to Tulum. You have to pass a bunch of stores walking into the ruins. Getting to the ruins is a quarter mile walk. The ruins are great and the gulf of Mexico that the ruins sit by make it that much more beautiful. Not as awe inspiring as Chichén Itzá but in its own right very nice ruins.

We had planned on taking an earlier tour but our ship came in an hour late but our guides were great about getting us onto the next tour and back to the ship on time. Everything went smooth and we enjoyed seeing the Mayan ruins. I think I liked just walking around and seeing it on our own better. The tour guide gave us an hour to see the ruins on our own and told us to be back to the bus by a certain time. The guys in charge of getting us there and back from the ship were great! Everything was well planned out and ready to go when we got to the meeting point.

5 StarsNice small group tour November 27, 2019

Reviewer: Jessica Crumrine
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!
