Tulum (Spanish pronunciation: [tu'lum], Yucatec: Tulu'um) is the site of a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city serving as a major port for Coba. The ruins are situated on 12-meter (39 ft) tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula on...more

The ruins at Tulum was the last major Mayan site that we hadn't been to in our 4th visit to the Mayan Riveria. We took a 1/2 day tour, booked by our condo manager, that included a cenote. We arrived at 9:00 am for our...More
We arrived upon park open, wasn't crowded yet but was already getting hot. They only accepted pesos. We took our time and walked through on our own without a guide. The signage was informative and was in both english and spanish.
Visited the ruins north of Tulum which is an adventure. Entry requires a ticket purchased at the site and guided tours are available if desired. We guided ourselves and stopped to read all the information panels through-out the site. It's amazing to look back and...More
We went in a Sunday afternoon... and there was a massive amount of people there at the same time! It was a very windy day so the beach area had big waves.. and there was a lot of seaweed on the beach. Lots of iguanas...More
We spent a few hours at the Ruins of Tulum, however it was to crowded to see anything, Our guide was hard to understand, as he switched between English and French, while trying to explain the history. We would not go back.
This visit is perfect for small kids. Not too much walking, lots to see. Our guide (hat tip to Absolute Adventures) was knowledgeable and engaging. I think we adults could have spent the day there but the kids topped out at about an hour and...More

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 Mexican vendors, and then city streets to get to the bus...and then reverse. You lose tons of time on the ferry and bus and its a complete cattle call starting with the ship (who has a fairly rude shore excursion director). That said, the Ruins themselves are spectacular. Tour guide was great although he talked loudly and all the time on the bus.

We had a familiar Mexican guide in his vehicle so in the 2wks we always felt safe. My main issue would be renting a car in Mexico. I did travel there many times in my own vehicle but would not rent a car these days, more... More
We had a familiar Mexican guide in his vehicle so in the 2wks we always felt safe. My main issue would be renting a car in Mexico. I did travel there many times in my own vehicle but would not rent a car these days, more for fear of a wreck than safety.
