I loved Tulum, the ruins were beautiful and it's perched on a cliff overlooking an absolutely stunning beach- it's paradise! We had a really knowledgeable guide called Ruben who made all the difference to our visit, we found out a lot about the Mayan people. Definitely worth coming as early as you can when its a bit cooler, and wear... More

rode our bikes here from our hotel. thought there was more here but still worth the trip. some of them seem to be in repair so you couldn't climb to the top. was crowded with buses but it is a tourist stop after all. no problem with the vendors as we rode our bikes by real fast :)...........

Tulum Ruins beach was known as one of the best beach, but there were too much seaweeds when we were there. We were able to swim but could not witness emerald beach. Make sure to have pesos before, because they only accept pesos for entrance.

Tulum is awesome. I have been here several times and i highly recommend you get a guide that can explain to you every detail. Theres so much nature around to see and a lot of things to learn from this specific spot in time. The beach at the botton is perfect for a quick swim to cool of. Enjoy!

A must climb Ruin of Coba. Our 3 year old climbed up. Amazing history experience. Tulum Ruins has beach area. Wear bathing suits.

Wife and I took a tour here. It was a highlight of our trip. The view from the top is amazing. There is a bit of a walk from where the bus drops you off, but nothing too arduous. There are gift shops close by if you want trinkets. Remember to bargain!

It's always nice to visit historical places. The shape of the ruins is bowl like which traps the sun with minimal breeze. Only at the beach end was there wind and water to cool. Go prepared.

This excursion was amazing. Our tour guide Alex Martinez was so knowledgeable and really had us wanting more after all the activities. He not only informed us but also allowed us to take in each moment and for that we will definitely recommend this tour to our friends and family. Thank YOU Alex!!!!!

Pack some sunscreen, sneakers, and enjoy this awesome ancient wonder! We didn't purchase a tour in advance. Instead, paid admission at the park, walked on our own among others, and enjoyed every minute of this history- including swimming in the ocean next to the ruins!

This place is amazing, the location its just perfect since the ruins are next to the ocean. Love the fact that after the long walk and visit of the ruins with the warm weather you can finish your day at the beach next to the ruins. I loved it and highly recommend it, the view is just amazing and the... More
