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. 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!

Reviewer: Elaine Peterson
Great trip, but very hot in July. A lot of walking and sweating. A $2 shuttle helped getting back to the bus. Tour guide very informative and very good and kept us under shade trees as much as possible. Also, had photos that helped explain the Ruins.

Reviewer: Victor Nguyen
Crew was very sweet, helpful and accommodating. They provided us lunch (Subway sandwich, chips and water bottle). Tour guide could have been more interactive. Other than that, the experience was great! Would totally recommend it again :)

Reviewer: Em
Everything ran extremely smooth. The tour was well organized and the guide at the ruins was helpful and kept everyone entertained. We did not swim but chose to take that time to continue exploring the ruins and the shops and think we made the right choice. Although it was very hot, there were more ruins to explore and the shops had air conditioning. We had subway for lunch on the way back to port and the tour company had water/beverages for the entire day.

Reviewer: Tiffany Matthews
Definitely a must see since Mayans weren't typically coastal people. The ruins were very cool to see, as were the carvings on some of the ruins. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable. Afterward we saw how chocolate was made with a chocolate tasting and had a tequila tasting. No, we didn't get sick.
