Full description

Discover the Tulum Archaeological Site and a picturesque cenote on a guided tour from Cancún. Learn about the ancient Mayan civilization as you see what remains of buildings such as the pyramid temple of El Castillo.

Start with a pickup from your hotel in Cancún. Travel to Tulum and explore one of the last cities built by the Mayans on an express tour of the archaeological site.

See the pyramid temple of El Castillo, the Temple of the Frescoes, and Templo Dios del Viento (Temple of the God of the Winds). You can then explore on your own and take in the views of the Caribbean Sea. Then, take some free time at the beach in Tulum.

Afterward, make a quick stop at a cenote where you will be able to refresh yourself with a swim at this natural sinkhole. Finally, relax on the journey back to your hotel in Cancún.

This tour was awesome and our guide Ruth was just great! We had a wonderful time and were amazed by all the things Ruth taught us about the Mayan culture. She was also happy to answer any of our questions. The cenotes we visited were stunning! I can highly recommend it!

REALLY GOOD: Ordering and paying online worked quickly and efficiently! The bus arrived at the hotel at the time Tulum we knew. It was amazing! Cenotes really good locations. The guides were friendly and had a lot to tell. REALLY BAD: It took almost TWO HOURS to pick up people from div. hotels. And almost TWO HOURS left… It was KILLING☹️☹️ On arrival in Tulum we were assigned ONE restaurant (although there were a lot!). Here we could make reservations and receive the food after Tulum. We had a clear impression of the RETURN COMMISSION - either to the guide or to the tour operator. ☹️☹️ The food was three DRY tacos with LITTLE filling, a little rice and a liquid, brown mass that should probably represent frijoles… ☹️☹️ And the price - incl. THE DISCOUNT - was 12 USD. ☹️☹️ Never - as in NEVER - have we paid SO much money for SO MUCH a meal in Mexico ☹️☹️ The guide on the way home told how little they earned and encouraged us to pay gratuity. ☹️☹️ Inappropriate☹️☹️

The trip itself was really nice, the guide was helpful and explained everything well. We had enough time to explore ourselves. The food (what was offered by the guide in a certain restaurant) was tasty but was not too much. But maybe just for us, because we were in an all inclusive hotel and we have been eating a lot during our holiday. It was also nice to have a bath in the cenote. There were showers and changing rooms there. So you don't need to worry about, where to change your clothes. There are lockers available too, so you can lock your personal belongings.
