We went today and splurged on a guide for the two of us. Although it was ~$47 US total it was well worth it. His knowledge and love of the history and site shined. Beautiful ruins, grounds, and spectacular views of the sea and surrounding areas from the highest point. Also cool was the iguana, turtle nests, and we even... More

No words can describe the emotion of meeting the blue ocean and the mayan history in one of the most beautiful scenarios in the world. This place is just amazing and a must in any Cancun visit. Close to Xel-Ha park it is easy to rent a car and see both sites in the same day. But pay attention to... More

This is such a stunning site - the sea is bright blue and the ruins against that backdrop look incredible. We took a bus from Playa del Carmen instead of a tour which was perfect as we could do it in our own time. Take your swimming stuff and cool down at the beach.

Hot, Hot, Hot. Be prepared the sun is brutal. There is a nice beach in the ruins. The water is crystal clear blue. The ruins are very interesting. Make sure to try the fish tacos at the restaurant in the village.

Best place to visit. Very hot, hard to get there, you have to walk from the Bus - to the entrance.. Bring water with you... Entrance was 59 pesitos, bring towel and have your bath suites on, there is also a nice beach, where you can go for swimming. For hobby photographers, this is the place where you have to... More

We went to the Mayan ruins in Tulum and saw some of the most beautiful scenery in the area, The ruins sit on a cliff over looking the ocean, I believe this is the only Mayan agrological site that is actually on the ocean. Instead of paying $75.00 or $100.00 each for the tour we simply went to the hiway... More

We drove from Cancun and arrived around midday so it was very hot! We hadn't brought swimming things which was shame as there is a lovely beach there. The town ruins are amazing - you can really feel how it was all set out and how people used to live. There's shops and rather backwards toilets on site, but you... More

The grounds are very well kept and visitor friendly. Everything is well marked in multiple languages. The Ruins themselves are very lovely and the view from the cliffs and beach are phenomenal.
