pro tip: go early, early. otherwise it's hot and super crowded. also, wear your swimsuit! the location is excellent, the grounds are well-kept and the hawkers were not pushy (!!). most definitely worth the visit, though i'd suggest reading up a bit before you go to be more familiar with what you're seeing.

it poured the day we went here, but there plenty of folks with ponchos for sale outside of the gates. I was soaked by the end of the tour, which ran in the rain anyway. It was something neat to see and the tour guides were informative and interesting. The beach was also pretty, like the rest of the beaches... More

This is a Mayan port city and although the ruins are smaller in scale than others in the region, they are in good condition (without the overt reconstructions of other sites), having suffered less damage from tree roots etc. The setting is beautiful and the atmosphere contrasts nicely to the inland sites in the jungle. The guide books mention a... More

Tulum was awesome. I had a blast touring all of the ruins, taking numerous photos and listening in on all the tour leaders, though ours was the best. My wife and daughter loved the beach, situated directly beneath the massive temple. It was quite the view looking up the cliffs and towrering over us was the beautiful Tulum temple.

The ruins were great and in a amazing place! Was very very busy which is to be expected. The Tulum breach is beautiful but don't expect it too be quite!

This tour was booked on my Carnival cruise. It was for my mother's 75th birthday. We took the ferry over from Cozumel. We were placed on the tour bus after a short walk from the peer. Angel was very knowledgeable and told us all kinds of information on the tour. His assistant Addy was also wonderful. It was extremely hot... More

Love the combination of the maya temples and 1 of the most amazing beaches i ve ever seen. Too bad we only were there for a few hours, so we didnt have enough time to really enjoy the beach. Well worth the trip though

The ruins of Tulum are underwhelming when compared to other sites like Chichen Itza, but that's not the point of this stop. See the majestic views of the ocean from the cliffs where these ruins are located, that's what makes this site a must. The ocean is amazing, anything looks great with that backdrop.

It was POURING rain when we arrived at Tulum, but that didn't stop us from having a great time. There was so much to see. The location on a cliff next to the ocean was beautiful. Went with Alma LDS tours and loved it.
