Don't miss touring the ruins of Tulum - The history is rich and the location beautiful! We toured this site with a knowledgeable guide who provided us with lots of info - I would highly recommend doing the same for the best experience!

Me and my husband had the best time learning and experience the history of the Mayan life . The day was very beautiful. The food and shopping was amazing and I would have to say I would definitely do this again. But one thing is your best months to visit would be October - March this was recommended by our... More

Booked our own trip with a cabbie and saved about $30 pp. We were a group of 8. Talked to the front desk, arranged for a van and made arrangements for him to wait for us.

This was our third visit to Tulum including our honeymoon visit 32 years ago. We wanted to share it with our friends who had not been to the ruins before and it was enjoyed by all. We didn't hire a guide although it is very affordable, but used a phone app that we could read easily. Be prepared on a... More

I went three weeks through Mexico with a friend and it was very special to see pyramids on the beach, however, don't expect to much of it, it's hard to get both the Pyramids and the beach on one picture, it's crowded with tourists (which makes pictures even more challenging), and if you saw other pyramids before, you will likely...

One of the most beautiful places and views I've seen! 100% worth the visit. My only recomendation is to bring water when visiting the site. There is also a beach so you can bring swim ware too.

Just simply amazed with this Culture we spent the Day on a Guided Tour of the Ruins and the History of the Mayan Culture. It's a must see great for whole Family not as Commercial as Chichen Itza. Great Beach for a Swim to cool off on a Hot Day a Tour Guide is a must to get the full... More

These ruins are set in such a beautiful location that they're worth the visit for that alone, even if you're not into history nor architecture. We didn't get a guide, and unless you are particularly interested in the history, I wouldn't bother. We rented bikes in Tulum and cycled there which meant we could cycle right to the entrance instead... More

Glad we visited these ruins. The park is on a small scale and easily seen in a few hours. There is a beach for swimming but no facilities. The iguanas are everywhere and fascinating to watch. Beware of the tourist shopping area prior to the park.

Great couple of hours walking around the site. We went without a guide, although the guides are inexpensive and all the ones we overheard in the ruins seemed very good. All signs in Spanish and English.
