Whilst part of down town is currently being refurbished, the overall experience is not worth a visit. Local authorities seem to put all of the tax dollars in maintaining the hotel zone and do zero to keep even a 3rd world standard in down town streets.

I'm assuming this is the Tulum Ruins, which is where we went. A very short trip - just breathtaking, but our tour guide was VERY hard to understand, which meant we missed out on a lot. Our entire group was saying the same thing - we simply didn't know what he was saying so we were on our own. I... More

Avenue Tulum is being renovated so traffic is horrendous and there is absolutely no way to park anywhere along the street, on either side. Businesses must be panicking as it is impossible to reach them. I imagine this situation is temporary...but for the moment, it's best to avoid the avenue!

street is tore up and some of the sidewalk. Major construction. Even the bus route is detoured, Temp bus stops are far away if you can find them.

Originally called Zuma, this is a great attraction. It is beautiful especially right next to ocean. Bring an umbrella becuae the dead heat with no wind is unbearable at times.

Good excursion and not as far as others. If you want to experince a small portion of the ruins this is the way to go

Great place to visit while in Cancun. Love all the activity. Also easy access to Palapas Park. Restaurants and shops up and down the street. ADO bus station that takes you to Playa or Puerto Morelos is located on tulum. Only bad thing is construction while where there. Wear hood shoes! No flip flops.

Take Rt 1 bus to downtown and get off at Municipal Bldg across from Burger King. Walk down to Palapas Park and enjoy the local vendors. You can also walk to Perico's from here if you are good walkers and out for adventure.

Incredible sites and great tour guide. Not enough time to enjoy it as we went to Xal-Ha right after.
