We really enjoyed our visit here. We hired a tour guide. Helps to skip the line and also to learn much more about the site. The signs are good but not too plentiful. The beach wasn't nice for swimming the day we were there. Make...More

We parked at the side of the road and walked up, we didn’t see any designated parking which was a bit odd. There was a guide talking to some others but we just bought tickets and wandered around ourselves. There was not a huge amount...More

We loved our visit to the Tulum ruins. They are magically placed overlooking the gorgeous blue/green sea and it's very affordable. You can walk through the grounds in about 45 mins to an hour, or linger longer. A tour guide is not needed. Do not...More

Go early before all the tourists come. Take plenty of water and have a look at the main temples they’re fantastic.

This was exactly what I had hoped it would be. Historical and breathtaking. The ruins are directly on one of the most beautiful beaches around. Iguanas are everywhere. This place was awe inspiring. And to think they were built hundreds of years ago with no...More

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

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
