Tulum is absolutely beautiful- our tour guide was wonderful and educated and he did a wonderful job of explaining the history of the ruins and temples. The stunning coast line views are amazing- the best I have ever seen. We truly enjoyed our tour here it is so worth seeing and exploring.

On a different scheduled tour, my wife and I visited Tulum Ruins. If you are in to Mayan history and don't mind climbing steep hills, long walks, and virtually no shade to block the searing sun during summer months, Tulum is for you. One saving grace after a hot walking day tour is the turquoise color ocean. I thought I... More

This was our second visit to Cancun but first to Tulum. We booked a day tour with the concierge at our hotel and the drive was LONG 2 1/2 hours but the site was Amazing. A must see if you are in Cancun.

This is one of the main arteries in Cancun and of course it is bounded by modernity all around. One of our walks took us from the beginning of Talum at Lopez Portillo to the seashell roundabout. We took our time and it was most enjoyable strolling along and taking in the busyness of the route. There are numerous shops,... More

One of the best days you can spend in the area. It is amazing how much you can learn about the Mayan culture here with the a tour guide, and the cliff side views of the ocean are breathtaking. The beach is beautiful. The ruins, a vast city that has been reclaimed from the jungle, and is absolutely fascinating. I... More

Avenida Tulum is a 4 lane highway in Cancun old town which is depressingly poor and run down, we visited hoping for a better experience than the hotel zone - wrong. The disparity is shocking - no money being spent on it or here in the town, It's a shame. Nothing for tourists - just shabby bars and restaurants where... More

Tulum Ave used to be "the" street downtown with clubs and shopping and restaurants. All that is gone now. Really nothing for tourists. Everything moved to Market 28. Sad.
