A beautiful Mayan archaeological site, well worth a visit if visiting the Caribbean coast of Mexico. Guides can be hired at the site if travelling independently or one could join an organised trip. Tickets cost Pesos 70, however on Sundays, residents of Mexico gain access...More

Definitely something to do, however i would recommend a guided tour, otherwise the risk is to roam among ruins without understanding much. In fact, signs are way too vague and say nothing about the place. It's a small site and it's impossible to get close...More

The Mayan ruins in Tulum are very well preserved and are in a gorgeous setting. The Castillo and Temple of the Wind God overlook the absolutely stunning beach. There are signs throughout the ruins that explain elements of ancient Mayan culture and architecture, but you...More
