70 pesos for a self guided tour of the ruins. It’s a great price to see history up close. The ruins are beautiful and the views from the cliffs are breathtaking. It was a nice day trip not far from our hotel.

We drove our rental car to Cenote Carwash. About 14mins from Tulum town. There are many others along that road that may be even better. Signs are posted clearly by the road.
