Call me crazy but I expected to see one big Mayan ruin. Instead we walked through the ancient walls into what would have been a thriving village. The beach was a highlight and the tourist trap at the entrance was off putting but we loved...More

The site is small in comparison to the other sites in the area, but worth the visit. If you only have one day to explore, I would recommend Coba over Tulum, but it was still lovely. Our tour guide was excellent but it was hot!...More

A lovely day visiting the ruins. Quite a drive from our hotel, but glad we made the trip. Our tour guide was great, he had local knowledge of the area and the history of the ruins. Tulum ruins are located on the ocean with beautiful...More

Not my speed, nothing special and I was surprised at the amount of people that spend a day going to see this. We were close, dropped in for 1 hour and felt ripped off. I'm 6'5 and was taller then some of the buildings.

The ruins were much larger and more preserved than I anticipated. The signage is easy to see and navigate without a guide. The line for tickets was short but the line to enter was long. Don't waste time with pre purchased tickets at a much...More

Partially-restored ruins of a Terminal Classic (800-1000 AD) walled Mayan port city. It is right on bluffs above the coast, a bit more hilly than most other Yucatan sites, but the beach and coast are lovely. Good paths through the site and its various structures...More

We spent around 2 hours at the ruins. Arrive early if possible, because when we arrived, there was loads of groups and organized tours that were blocking the paths at every turns! It was really hot despite the wind so bring a hat and loads...More

Small site, doesn't take long to visit. If you can, get there as soon as it opens at 8am - It's really busy by 10 am. Within easy cyling distance from Tulum

The ruins themselves are magnificent and border the most glorious beach. Getting through the souvenir stands and people selling photos with birds and beasts- not so much. For a more peaceful, contemplative experience, head to Coba. No beach, smaller ruins but a more immersive feel.

I don’t know for sure, as we did not hire a guide ourselves, but at the entrance we’re several guides waiting, asking if they’d need a tour.. so I assume you can book a tour at the site.

Yes, it’s a very long day and not sure we’d do it again as there is no time to explore Cozumel. We were gone for 9 hours and only a couple of that was quality time. The rest was a ferry, walking through a mall with typical... More
