If you visit the Yucatan Peninsula, you absolutely have to see the Ruins Of Tulum! Once you get past the gift vendors, it's a trip back to the 13th century.

Not much to do once there, very hot and no shelter. Best hours are early in the am. They do have a machine to use a credit card to purchase tickets.

This was a highlight of the trip. They were so incredible and much more than I had expected. I'm so grateful that we did this. We did not do a guided tour and I don't feel it's necessary to have one.

No, we rented a car and drove to the ruins. However, there are taxis everywhere.

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.

The beach is not open in the tulum ruins due to the seaweed pile up but the view of the ocean from the top of the ruins should not be missed!!!
