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

I had no idea the ruins are so extensive! When you see pictures, you usually only see the one on the cliff. But there are many buildings here to see and lots of iguanas! It was severely overcrowded the day were there which made it...More
Tulum ruins is a truly remarkable and atmospheric place. Get there early to avoid the worst of the crowds. We hadn't truly researched it before going and had not been warned about the touts in the car-park. They look really official and direct you to...More
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
Was amazing to see the wonderful ruins and all of the iguanas. Beautiful beach there. They give you a short tour an then you go an look at the rest of the ruins on your own. There are only a couple of places to eat....More
Sadly the town and the archaeological site have been over-run with tourists and are so commercialised now that visiting either of them is not a pleasure. But this is a personal view, some people might love the place, but for me it was over crowded,...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 no problem getting a (marked) cab from our hotel, the fee is reasonable, they take US$, once we were done with Tulum, he drove us to the Grand Cenote and waited for us (one hour) then returned us to the hotel. It was... More
