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!

5 StarsInterestingSeptember 07, 2017

Reviewer: James Passeretti
This was the highlight of the trip for me. The ruins were on my bucket list! I booked through Costco but found out that the world in the Caribbean moves at its own slow pace. Tulum is far from the ship's dock. A cab ride just to get to the meeting point for the trip, then a ferry ride then a long bus ride. A quick explanation with a little detail from a professional tour guide that spoke English well. Some free time to explore then the long return trip back to the ship. I knew more about Tulum before I got there from my own research then the guide provided. I wouldn't miss it and would do it again but plan ahead if there is something specific you would like to see so you can bee line to it in the limited time you have. Lots of people, stores and interesting touristy things to see. Back to the ship on time. Spent only 1.5 hrs at Tulum all the rest was travel time.

Reviewer: Philip Strawbridge
Overall the shore excursion was good. The best thing was the views at Tulum were fantastic. There was a lunch included however is was not so great. It was a sandwich from Sunday. Would have been better to have lunch at a local place on the way back to the ship. The one downside was the long trip to Tulum in a boat then a small bus. The people were nice.

4 StarsGood TripJuly 20, 2017

Reviewer: Diane Bender
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
