This is a great place to avoid Cancun timeshares. Nice places to stay on the peninsula south of Tulum

The ruins at Tulum are breathtaking, the history, the views and swimming at the beach looking back at the ruins. Well worth having a guide to learn about it.

Loveliest view where it opens up to the sea from the ruins. Off the beaten path - took a bus to the ruins.

New cafe place serving breakfast, snack lunch; great prices, very good food and very nice owner and staff. 'El Buen Cafe' is located on Avenida Tulum a block south of ADO after Hostel Maya.

The ruins aren't as impressive as some of the others in Mexico but geez... the view from them is just terrific! the turquoise waters, the drinks by the beach, its heaven - the ruins are very touristy with a lot of big groups wondering around

And by that, I don't mean the party center at Punta Cancun--I mean the old Cancun downtown where there are dozens of delicious restaurants, local shops that sell beautiful souvenirs, outside seating and a good feeling of being out of the hotel zone with all of the tourists (like us!) to interact and support the local people of Cancun who...

I have been here twice and somehow forgot how hot it can be out in the open! We traveled in a group of 10 with 4 kids. We arrived at 9:30 am and were touring the ruins by 10am. The kids were so hot and the adults were unable to really listen to the tour guide since the kids were... More

The ruins are well preserved. You can't get very close, but it was cool to see. Especially the big "castle". There were huge iguanas all over and the beach was awesome.

Travel to Tulum from Cancun. Stop in Playa Del Carmen, enjoy the sights at Tulum. Bring Bathing Suits and a... More
