After parking the car, we noticed a tram but unfortunately didn't take it ... the walk to the ruins was VERY LONG, in the sun and near standing water (meaning next to billions of hungry mosquitoes) ... I don't remember much else except the hundreds of bites and heat.

This was a great visit to a historical site. The views from the ruins were amazing and beautiful. Be sure to bring a hat as it does get hot while walking around.

This is close to the Hotel that we stayed in. Mi Amor. the Mayan Ruins are a wonderful experience and a beautiful part of the world. It is a must see. Entrance is very inexpensive. There are no stores at the sight so make sure you take some bottle water to keep hydrated.

We didn't hire a guide and unfortunately there isn't many information posts around the site to tell you what you're looking at. I would definitely recommend hiring a guide if you want the most out of your visit.

One of the most beautiful places in Yucatán, where you can feel the spirit of a missing race. You can stay in Cancun, and travel Tulum by the day. Even better if you can stay around. .

I visited the ruins during our cruise. We had a great guide that knew the history and answer all our questions. It is a lot of walking but worth it.

We were there and enjoyed the place knowing how old was and the type of activities the Mayans used to do thousands of years ago. We also had a chance to swim there. The beach is easy to access. I recommend this place. Be prepared for mosquitos though.

Great place, very authentic and well preserved, you can fill the history when you walk around. Its views and the beach are simply spectacular.
