Place is great but meaningless unless you know what happened behind it. Highly recommend a guide. we took the tractor to the ruins which was money well spent in winter. I would imagine in summer it's far more valuable!

We took a taxi from Playa del Carmen to Tulum. We made a deal with the driver for a return trip. He also dove us around the town of Tulum and stopped in Puerto Adventuras. It took us around 1 hour to get there. Ticket was 59 pesos. Kids were free. The walk from the taxi stand to the entrance... More

The whole cultural experience when inside the grounds of Tulum ruins is amazing and a must see. Despite the poorly informed guides (they just tell you the exact info you can read on your brochure) we had a great time seeing history. Now the beach is AWESOME!! We were told it is rated as one of the top ten in... More

I found the ruins to be less magical than I thought they'd be - you can't go very close to them and explore at all (which is understandable but definitely not how the ruins are portrayed) However, the beach in Tulum is breathtaking. I highly recommend going if not solely for the beach and impossibly blue water. Check it out.... More

Shoulder to shoulder with tourists more interested in taking pictures than actually experiencing the ruins in the moment. You can't get super close to the ruins as they are roped off. Better to watch a documentary!

You can't come to the Riviera Maya and not visit the ruins and Tulum has some amazing views and interesting history! It is very warm inside the walls and pretty crowded but that is expected. Our guide was from Xperiencias Xcaret and did a very nice job, adding little details that he found interesting!

easy walking tour, interesting and beautiful. Be sure to take the train in from the parking lot. It was crowded but it did not interfere with our enjoyment of the ruins

My daughter and I visited and loved these ancient ruins and the stories we heard. The guide Margarita was very good she even sprayed us all with bug spray and was a great guide. A little shopping afterwards and then a trip to the beach .....

Early means get there by 8:00AM and bring your guidebook and water because the shop doesn't open until later. Beautiful setting and lots to see. My two cents: the Incas make the Maya look like amateur stonemasons.

Haven't been to tulum in years. It has changed a lot. Very clean and well taken care of. A must see if you rare traveling and visiting ruins. This was the only Mayan ruins next to the ocean. Very interesting to walk around and read all about it. Best if you have a guide to explain everything. But definitely a... More
