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, which is 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 Cozumel Mayan Ruins, you'll hop back on your bus, return to Playa del Carmen, and enjoy a ferry ride back to Cozumel.

Tulum tour

We were met at the ferry terminal in Cozumel by our guide Gabriel. We took the ferry across to playa Del Carmen and then we transferred to a very clean transport van to go to go to Tulum. After giving us time for us to use the restroom before going into the ruins, he then turned us over to a fascinating and informative guide named Florian. Florian had extensive knowledge of the culture and history of the Mayans and even spoke Mayan! It is very hot at the ruins as there is no real shade, so I recommend bringing an umbrella to give yourself some shade. The water views at the ruins were beautiful.

It is gorgeous there, the ruins are incredible! They are located on the coast. You can walk down some stairs and get to the beach, just beautiful.

This was excellent. Guide was very informative. We were picked up on time at our meeting place that morning and arrived back at the scheduled time. Cheaper than the same excursion offered on the cruise ship. We had a Subway sandwich for lunch.

We had a wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable and good humored tour guide. He gave us the history of the Mayan culture, explained their brilliant determination of the calendar and explained the archaeological ruins that we visited.

Good visit but a long drive

These are nice. I would just say that the trip to get there was over an hour each way. Not the best ruins I have seen, but I have seen incredible ones. The driver and the guides were terrific. Not an issue with the service, just a long way to go.

I was there 3 years ago and I am going back. There is so much to see. I hope on this next trip they will allow for more time to see it all.
