Had a wonderful time visiting the ruins, went by collectivo from our resort Grand Palladium. We had been many times before but it's so beautiful we wanted to visit again, spent time jumping in the waves down on the beach. took many pics, kids loved it and so did we.

We did a day trip here from Cancun and had a fantastic time. It was REALLY HOT the day we visited the ruins so the kids really didn't enjoy walking around looking at 'boring piles of rock' :) But my husband and I found it very interesting and wished we could've spent some more time there. Pretty amazing piece of... More

This is an amazing archeological site well worth the trip and interesting insight into the Mayans along with Chechen Itzia not to be missed. Bring a suit and towel if you want to swim where the Mayans did.

Simply the view of the ruins next to the beautiful Caribbean sea is enough for a trip to Tulum to be worth your time. Make sure to check out the ruins, go for a swim and if you can go to Akumal to do some snorkelling. It's almost guaranteed that you'll see turtles and rays if you snorkel there :).

great place for a short visit. Half a day required at the most. Best time to visit would be morning whilst the sun is on the sea. Not a huge place. You can walk one end to the other in 10 minutes. Nice beach area for bathing although there are no changing rooms so bear that in mind. You have... More

Beautiful doesn't cut it for this place. See the pyramids at Tulum with a turquoise ocean in the background and spend some minutes on the white beach below them. You won't regret it. I've been to other ancient ruins in Mexico, nothing compares to seeing them in this location.

I really wanted to ee some Mayan ruins but I did not want to spend a whole day doing it. This was great. It was only a half day and I got my history fix.

This site is a must see for visitors to Yucatan. It's an easy drive by hire car from Cancun and the cost to get in is very reasonable. The site is well organised and there are some very good official guide packages that you can buy when you purchase your tickets. This is a very interesting place, but using a... More
