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.

The Tulum Mayan Ruins are extremely photogenic. Plenty of memorable snapshots are yours to take on this unforgettable Cozumel excursion. Book today as part of your next great vacation!

Efficient Trip to Tulum
August 03, 2022
This tour was extremely efficient. You take a quick taxi over to the entrance to the ferry on Cozumel where they meet you. You then take the ferry over to Playa del Carmen and go in an air conditioned vehicle to Tulum. You have time to explore Tulum and time to shop for souveniers. You get a quick lunch and then AC bus back followed by the ferry. It is very difficult to get people over to Tulum from the cruise stop at Cozumel, but these guys make it efficient.

Great introductory tour
June 21, 2022
Due to the logistics of getting from the ship to Tulum and back, there really isn't a lot of time to visit and take in the ruins. BUT, if you are with high schoolers or smaller kids - an introductory tour is probably all that the family can take in. There are some amazing views from Tulum and is a great ruin. If you are looking for a deep dive and want to understand every ruin, there isnt enough time for this if you are doing this a a part of a cruise excursion. Shopping isnt intrusive as it is at other ruins (major plus).

Mayan Ruins of Tulum
April 26, 2022
Very nice area and ruins. The guide gave wonderful history of the purpose of the different ruins and Mayan history. Know that it is a longer walk (1/2 mile) from parking lot to ruins, but they have an open air bus for $2 per person each way. It was very hot in April, so wear light clothing. Some people had an umbrella.

Tulum tour
January 03, 2022
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.
