A must go.
A must see. Interesting, you breathe the feeling of living in that era
Bring your swimkinis and dive in the Caribbean Sea for some refreshening in between the hot hike.
Tons of pictures
The history of this place is amazing... The view, the blue turquoise water BREATHTAKING ♡
Take a magical dip where the Mayans touched shore.
I do belive people here were in contact with aliens and else
A lot of iguanas around the place. But don't even try to catch or feed them- they bite!
A must see when on the Yucatan.... great temples and get a sense how the Mayan lived. Bring a swimsuit to swim down on Paradise Beach
You neeed to go here. The ruins are amazing, the beach is stunning, and the cenotes are unlike anything else. If you’re lucky like me, you might get engaged on the cliffs :)
You can go directly from the ruins to a nice beach. It is pretty crowded though. There are a lot of iguanas. You can take a really close picture as they are not scared of people
Amazing place. You can walk 10 mins from the entrance and avoid the train
Well worth a wander but when people say "get there early" they mean EARLY. By 10am the place was packed with tour busses. Really took away from the enjoyment. It's small too.
Bring water. It gets surprisingly hot for a place this close to the ocean. Also be prepared to wait a while for the damn iguanas to move so you can videotape them being interesting...
To avoid the group come early with water, swimsuit, sunblock and enjoy the view. Most of the buildings have explanation on them but it is very superficial. After the visit go to playa pescadores
Bar in PLAYA MAYA
We went early October at midday and it wasn't that busy. Not a huge site and you can't walk on the ruins, but worth a visit. There's a shuttle to take you to/from site (15 min walk)
Don't let the guys from the touristic agencies rip you off with all the "additional" crap they are selling. Just buy your entrance to the place which is about 55 pesos. You don't need to hire a guide
DON'T CLIMB THE RUINS!! Argggg
Don't go to Riviera Maya and skip Tulum. It's worth the hot sun, the tourists, and the drive from Cancun.
The beach below is picture perfect. The water is amazing. The ruins are meticulously preserved. The setting is fantastical. ¡Bravo, Mexico, bravo! Exceptionally well done!
Great place to visit, don't pay attention to anyone but the official information booth. Everyone tyres to sell you something. Just go straight and pay 20 pesos and the bus will take you there.
Go at 8am! No buses means no giant groups of tourists means a beach & ruins tour all to yourself!
View from the ocean is amazing, so worth going to the beach inside the archeological zone.
Take Miguel as guide!
Close earlier than sunset. Larger than expected. Consider 1-2 hr walking around when you plan to go there.
57 pesos entrance. Drive in towards the hotel zone and bypass the main parking area and entrance if possible. The exit brings you close to this entrance!
Park near the beach if u r driving!!
Fantastic and mytic place
Go early and bring a bathing suit.
Amazing site and the history is breathtaking
A little known area of Mayan ruins that should be visited by all archeology fanatics & the like!
DON'T buy the ticket for the snorkeling in playa paraíso (paradise beach) in here, they are only the middleman and take a great commission, instead go to the beach and buy the tour right in the boat.
Arrive as close to 8am open as you can, before the tour busses arrive. Also bring a swimsuit, you'll want a dip to cool off.
Get there early to beat the tours and the heat.
Forget the hotel tours and waterpark nonsense, take an ADO bus here (US$20 round trip from Cancun) and pay general admission (US$5,7). Must see.
Overcrowded and tiny ruins, _almost not worth it. The beach was nice, though. But if you'll skip some ruins, I'd say skip these.
Get in at 8am when the gates open and you will be out by 9.30am when the bus loads of tourists rock up.
Definitely wear mosquito spray!
Get there at 8 am to avoid the crowd…its magic when there isn't so many people around… You will see lots of Iguanas :) 57 pesos la entrada (like all Mexico's Zonas arqueológicas managed by INHA)
Stunning place with ruins right by the sea. Bring your swimsuit to swim like a Mayan looking at the temple. Also, there are many leguans who think you cannot see them. Let them believe that.
Come as soon as possible, around 10am is too late.
Amazing Mayan city well restored. Don't miss a swing at the beautiful beach to the left of the "Castillo"
worth the trip to see ruins in a setting like this. grab some bikes and head down the main road from town. make sure to get there as close to when it opens at 8 or don't go, the crowds get nuts at 9
Cool if you study in mexico dont have to pay entrance and honestly tour guides are expensive
Bring water to drink and wear comfortable shoes.
Get there as early as possible and head straight through the ruins to the beach. Amazing before it gets crowded.
The best place to visit.
