Carretera Federal, Cancun - Chetumal Km 230, 307, Tulum, Riviera Maya & the Yucatan

The Basics

Just a short trip from the Hotel Zone of Cancun and next to the Caribbean Sea, the spectacular Tulum ruins are an ideal spot to explore some of the Yucatan's Mayan history. Perched on a rugged coastline, the ruins are modest but well-preserved and boast stunning views of the seaside area. Stroll through the ruins on a self-guided tour, or sign up for one of the many available Tulum tours guided by an archaeologist. Consider booking an early-access tour to avoid having to compete for space with large tour groups.

Tulum Ruins Private Tour with Turtle and Cenote Snorkeling
💯 must go on this tour! Our tour guide, Alex was an excellent!! He shared his knowledge in an entertaining and interesting way. We beat all of the crowds at Tulum and the Cenote.

VIP Tulum Private Tour
We were so happy with our tour! Manuel took care of us so well! He specifically spoke to our 5 year old son and included him in everything, while making sure his safety took precedence! We enjoyed a lovely lunch with our guide on the way home from the cenote after visiting Tulum. We definitely recommend this!

Tulum and Cenotes Tour
Our guide, Rey, was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He took good care of us, making us feel safe and catered to. He showed us the best parts of Tulum and gave us plenty of time to eat and shop on our own. He even secured transportation for us the next day on a different excursion.

Full-day tour to Tulum and Jungle Maya Native Park with Ziplines & Cenotes
Awesome, fun, adventurous tour with awesome and knowledgeable guides. We had a blast. We went to the jungle first (I do recommend wearing sports shorts or swim trunks, along with a a light t shirt) as you will want to change into another outfits when you head to Tulum.

Private (only you!) Discover Tulum & Coba with a Delicious Beachside Lunch
Walking through the tunnel at Tulum & then discovering the ruins & thinking wow. Would definitely recommend the tricycle bike ride at Coba, it was disappointing not to be able to climb at Coba but was great to experience Nohoch Mul on our own with nobody else around.

Tulum, Coba, Playa Del Carmen and Cenote Day Tour
Very good day out with very attentive and knowledgeable tour guides. The tour guide we had was very clued up with local knowledge at Tulum and one of the Mayan villages we visited which was impressive and interesting. The food at the Mayan Village was absolutely amazing, best food we had during our visit to Mexico. There wasnt any pressure for tips at all however their service was first class so was well deserved. Thanks

All-Inclusive! Tulum Ruins, Tequila Tasting + Swim in 3 Cenotes in Small Group!
Cesar is the best! As a tour guide he provides an awesome experience in Tulum! You see the centro, the beach, the beautiful ruins, and the amazing cenotes all in one day. We had so much fun on this tour because it was very relaxed and we got an authentic experience from Cesar that you are not going to find anywhere else!

Fun experience in Tulum! The ocean water was quite polluted by the algae, unfortunately. However, the spot for snorkeling where fresh water meets saltwater was quite clean.

How to Get to the Tulum Ruins

Day trips to the Tulum ruins are available from Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, the Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, and other locations in Quintana Roo.

Show all


When to Get There

As with most popular attractions in subtropical Mexico, the earlier you arrive, the better—walking through the Mayan ruins is a lot more pleasant without the midday sun beating directly down on your head. April through October is considered low season, while you'll see fewer crowds and a little bit of rain in September and October. The rest of the year, the tourist industry is in full swing with heavy crowds, so consider an early-access tour.

Things to Do in Tulum Besides Visiting the Ruins

The ruins are set against a backdrop of some of Mexico's best beaches, such as Akumal, that are ideal for diving and snorkeling. Whale sharks frequent the area from June to September, so if you visit during that time, be sure to book a tour that combines a trip to the ruins with a snorkel expedition to get your own whale shark experience. Tulum also has popular freshwater cenotes and passageways to an underground river.

Boca Paila Beach is a pristine area yet to be invaded by big-name resorts. Local craft markets sell souvenirs, and you can watch the Mayan pole flyers on a walk around town. Tulum Beach Road takes travelers to the Sian Ka'an Biosphere and Punta Allen for swimming in the clear waters, while further along is Tulum Pueblo with its quaint local shops and restaurants.
