The ruins were awesome and the ocean view made it even better. Lots of lizards and we saw a badger-like animal as well. It would have been nice to have a tour guide to learn more but we happily walked around at our own pace and took pictures as we pleased.

I don't doubt that the ruins at Chicken Itza are more impressive, but Tulum makes for a relatively easy day trip.... More

Advice is not to go with the tour guide that the Hotel beds people organise. From Playa del carmen take a cab and hire an english speaking guide.

Stunning ruins right on the water. Amazing views. It was hot there though, so take sunscreen. We went on a tour that was 1/2 day Tulum and half day ecopark. I would go again if given the opportunity.

Expensive guides and good enough signage for average 'tourist'. No eating place but can get drinks and there are toilets.
