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. You don't have to pay for kids so it makes it a nice place to take the kids. Spent a couple hours here, but could have stayed for longer.

Tulum is worth a trip while in the Mayan Riviera. Rent a car if you are in the area. Taxis to and from the hotels will cost about as much as car rental. Push for a deal with the vendors. Travel to Tulum from Cancun. Stop in Playa Del Carmen, enjoy the sights at Tulum. Bring Bathing Suits and a... More

We did a guided tour just like most tourists. $110 USD for Tulum and Xel Ha day trip. 0) I would recommend spending a whole day in Xel Ha though. 1) bring water, or the tour guide will provide some. 2) big place, a good guide will make your trip worth while. 3) a place for beautiful photos. 4) purposely...

We went on a Saturday morning to see the ruins and swim. We got there by 10:30 and it was extremely busy! Had an awesome guide, Ernie, who really shared his passion of his culture. Learned a lot! Went down to the beach which was also very crowded and didn't think to put swimsuits on underneath clothes, so no swimming... More

We had a tour guide who was not only familiar with the site, but tied it in with archaeological relevance with the Old Testament structures. It was fascinating and beautiful. However, there are better sites, but a good guide can make even the mundane become alive.

Bring lots of Reef Safe sunscreen. We wore tshirts over our bathing suits to keep from frying! Talum is like stepping back in time. Xelha is a blast! Xcaret is like a huge rain forest! If you go, wear a hat dress with your suit under your clothes. We only snorkled at Xelha.

and not an archeological site in the Riviera Maya. Great for shopping on a local scale for all you Walmart shoppers. Do people really know where they are?
