After an extremely hot, long, and boring guided tour of the Mayan ruins, my bf and I were looking into splashing around in the amazingly beautiful waters that were only a staircase away. Unfortunately, there was a rope across the stairs down to the beach--sea turtles laying their eggs. VERY irritated, hot, and grumpy. Luckily we walked a ways down... More

This was our view from the top, near the structures, we were trying to find the staircase to descend and situate our big bag of beach gear...the guide books said, beach but not that there was only one bath room at the front gate ACRES away in 90 plus degree heat and so I opted to just wade in this...

The sand is so soft and the water just cool enough to refresh. We enjoyed riding the waves and laying in the sun, then riding the waves and so on!

Great place for beach lovers - would visit again! Bring your sunscreen and re-apply regularly as little shade. Worth the visit.

From the main castle you get a breath taking view that leaves you speachless! than you walk down the stairs and you find yourself in piece of haven you never knew it existed! It's definitely a place you do't want to miss.

Iconic yes but when I walked down to the beach from the ruins I was not impressed. Too many people, water very rough, and lots of seaweed and trash on the small sand. See for yourself as you may love it.

Tulum is a must. While it has gotten more touristy over the years, this is one place you don't want to miss if you are in the area. The beach is so gorgeous and the water is something out of a movie.

You visit the Mayan Ruins in Tulum, be sure to wear a bathing suit underneath. There is access to the beach and there are so many rocks to climb, areas to sit, and swim. The water is perfect, just a bit salty. There are iguanas just chillin right next to you.

This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The sand is white and soft. The water so clear and warm. Tulum - small, but a beautiful coastal location.

Beautiful warm and amazing. Looking up at the ruins while swimming . Feels like your in paradise. Could see it getting too busy at times but was OK while we were there.
