Stunning location. Go early the crowds are pretty bad after 10:30am. The signage is informative but easy to understand. The paths are well delineated but are not suitable for wheelchairs or people that have trouble walking. The beach is approached down quite a steep staircase...More

We were three generations visiting this magnificent place. Get their early to avoid the crowds. And, just outside the entrance there is a government sanctioned guide service booth. We hired a guide and he was excellent. The history is amazing and if you want after...More

Went on this excursion for a half a day trip from Play del Carmen. Tour lasts about 1 hour. Reasonably priced and only a short van ride to get there. This was a very informative tour that was made even better by our guide Yuri....More

Feel adventurous and know this place, I've been there and its beautiful. A great piece of history at your disposal. The only thing that sucks it's the warm heat so you're always sweating and thirsty

Tulum is small compared to Tikal, but it has some breathtaking views and impressive architecture, alhough you cannot climb any of the structures. The history is interesting and you can also access the beach from there if you like.

It was nice and pretty to see with the ocean background but having just been to Chichen-Itzá and Uxmal, I’d give it a solid ‘meh’ It’s probably worth the $75 pesos if you’re already staying in the area but definitely not worth a trip to...More

Beautiful ruins perched atop the cliffs. Easily accessible through a short walk from the beaches nearby. Park there and walk (don't pay the people claining you must go through them near the entrance). The snorkle trip view of the ruins from seaside is breathtaking as...More

It is 2 hour drive from Cancun on a decent road. The ruins are top notch, clarity on how to navigate them, is not. If you want to charge your tickets, use the ATM kiosk before the line for paying in cash but then we...More

I believe most of the ruins are wheelchair accessible but give it a go anyway. Well worth it. Maybe sunrise or sunset visit would be better as less crowded and more spectacular

Unfortunately no you can't, they have stopped allowing people to climb on the ruins many years ago. But it's still worth the visit, there are some in xcaret you can climb.
