    Get there early. There is little to no shade and it can get very hot. The buses from Cancun and the cruise ships arrive around 10 or 11 and it begins to get crowded so getting their early is best!

    If you don't know much about this place, do a walking tour with a local guide. It costed about 780 pesos for 2 and it was well worth it. It included the entrance fee and fast-track entry.

    The view of the Caribbean Sea is awesome here from the cliff. I wouldn't pay for the guides as there are interpretive signs. Also, I would take public transportation to get there as it saves money.

    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

    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

    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

    Open from 8 am to 5 pm daily, parking us$2.50 entrance us$4.25.Tulum is one of Mexico’s most scenic archaeological sites, built atop a 40-foot cliff rising abruptly from turquoise Caribbean waters.

    Excellent IMAX theater. And the luxurious shops are top-notch. My ex girlfriend became a pilot studying here. Don't miss the French patisserie.

    Take in the carefully restored relics of a civilization that thrived in the 13th–15th centuries. The reconstructed temples are jaw-dropping—even from the distance imposed by the ropes that guard them.

    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 :)

    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

    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.
  • Anna-Kim P.
    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)

    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.

    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.

    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)

    The ruins are awesome, there is a beach where you can swim, also you can see iguanas, coatis and a lot of birds.

    Been here 5+ times
    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.

    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...

    Entrance fee costs ~ $4 USD per person. Do a walking tour for about $400 pesos or $25 USD ( includes entrance fee + fast-track + shuttle). Walking tours do not accept cards. Pay in pesos to save.

    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!

    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!
  • Yanira R.
    Bring your swimsuit and a towel because after exploring the ruins you can head down the stairs to a beautiful beach.

    Get there as early as possible and head straight through the ruins to the beach. Amazing before it gets crowded.

    Don't go to Riviera Maya and skip Tulum. It's worth the hot sun, the tourists, and the drive from Cancun.

    Amazing Mayan city well restored. Don't miss a swing at the beautiful beach to the left of the "Castillo"

    make sure to find your way down the cliff to the beach; you'll need a jump in the water after a hot walk around the ruins

    A little known area of Mayan ruins that should be visited by all archeology fanatics & the like!

    Vey well maintained park. Great view of the ocean. The beach is not as good as in front of the Tulum hotels.

    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

    For the best moment for pictures, come early in the morning or late in the day. They are open from 8:am to 5:pm

    Go at 8am! No buses means no giant groups of tourists means a beach & ruins tour all to yourself!

    Forget the hotel tours and waterpark nonsense, take an ADO bus here (US$20 round trip from Cancun) and pay general admission (US$5,7). Must see.
  • Violetts M.
    You should be there at 8am to enjoy the place in peace after 10am it gets very crowded, extremely =$

    Close earlier than sunset. Larger than expected. Consider 1-2 hr walking around when you plan to go there.

    Get in at 8am when the gates open and you will be out by 9.30am when the bus loads of tourists rock up.

    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.

    A lot of iguanas around the place. But don't even try to catch or feed them- they bite!

    When you arrive tourist guides will try to sell their tours. Good prices, kind of annoying.
