We rented a car to be able to visit all of the ruins in this part of Yucatan. So we arrived at Tulum early, before the hordes of bussed tourists. The site is not great, compared with Chichen Itza or Coba, but the place has a certain charm, probably because of its special location overlooking the sea, and the fact that being small, it is easy to see as an entity, to imagine how life was in here centuries ago.
Not being able to go into the buildings or climb the structures detracts from the overall experience, but feel free to use your imagination.
The only real negative I have to mention is the nickel and diming locals do with every little thing, from souvenirs to the train ride from the parking lot to the entrance. I guess everybody has to make a living...
