Full description

Explore the archaeological ruins of Tulum with an experienced guide, plunge into a refreshing cenote hidden by the jungle canopy, and check out the hip shops and stylish boutiques in Playa del Carmen on this full-day excursion.

Be picked up at your hotel and relax on the way to site of Tulum's weather-worn ruins that are perched above the sandy shores of the Caribbean. Let your guide take care of the admission fees and head inside to uncover the secrets of the ancient Maya.

Stroll between temples, palaces, and fortresses that have stood for hundreds of years. Slip down to the beach for some leisure time on the sand. Continue on to the Mariposa cenote, where dappled sunlight illuminates a freshwater pool in the middle of the jungle.

Take a dip to cool off, enjoy a tasty buffet lunch on site, and then take a ride to wrap up your day among the bustling activity of Playa del Carmen.

I enjoyed my day trip to Tulum very much! Pick up was on time. Bus was very comfortable. Bus driver Ramon is very gentle and friendly. Guides Ramon & Alexis are very good, interesting, entertaining , knowledgeable. Ocean view from Tulum is very nice. Iguanas are on a trail eating small plants). Two cenotes were refreshing and interesting to swim in them. Thank you for everything!

We really enjoyed visiting Tulum and getting to know the Mayan history. The guides are very competent and fun. The cenotes, and Playa del Carmen were pleasant visits, attending the mayan ceremony a little extensive, attentive to the time when you are a little tired and hambrienta. We recommend the tour with this small suggestion. Sara Venade and Family

Both Get Our Guide and EKINOX TOURS get 5/5 stars. Get Our Guide had many communications with me to ensure our pick up location and time is clear and confirmed with vendor. The tour was absolutely worth the money and time. Pick up was on time. Mario, our tour guide, gave instructions and was very passionate about the Mayan culture and it’s people. We had the BEST time at the cenote (wish it was longer). Playa del Carmen was charming. Would definitely recommend Ekinox Tours and will definitely use them again next time I am in the Yucatán!
