I really liked ruins out there, it is not as grand as in Xcaret but still nice to tale pictures and stroll along. If those are first Mayan's ruins/or the only one you plan to visit you should take guide with you!

The Ruins of Tulum are a must see if you are in the area. The entire tour took us about an hour and it was so worth it.

My husband and I loved visiting the ruins of Tulum. There is plenty of history to learn. It is best if you can take the tour with a guide. We did not, so I think it would had been better if we did.

The History of the people and the Ruins as told by our guide was out standing . You will do a lot of walking. What a nice place to spend the day.

Hi keep in mind that a drive from Cancun to Tulum can take up to 2 hours. Said that once you get to the entrance of the ruins I would probably hire a tour guide, considered the size of the site the tour won't go for longer... More
