    Tulum Archaeological Site
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Your guide will pick you up from your Cancun or Riviera Maya hotel between 7am and 9am, depending on your location. Board your air-conditioned coach and head to Tulum, the ancient Mayan city situated atop a cliff overlooking the Caribbean. For two hours, a guide walks you through tour of the "Walled City" that played such a significant role in Mayan culture and commerce. See El Castillo (The Castle), stroll past the Temple of Frescoes and the Palace, and learn about the Maya who built the city during different periods. After your tour concludes, wander on your own for an hour, taking photos, enjoying the beach, or even taking a dip in the sea before boarding your coach for the return trip. You'll be back at your hotel at around 2:45pm. Round-trip transport by air-conditioned coach is included from Cancun and the Riviera Maya, as are entrance fees, bottled water, and professional guides.
