Tulum Express Half-Day Tour from Playa del Carmen
USD 57.00
Overview
Visit the Maya city of Tulum on a 6-hour tour from Playa del Carmen, and explore temples, pyramids, and history at the edge of the Caribbean Sea. See the site on a two-hour guided tour, then enjoy an hour to explore on your own, snap photos, or visit the Tulum beach. This 6-hour tour includes pickup and drop-off at Playa del Carmen hotels, as well as entrance fees at the Tulum Archeological Site.
What to Expect
Start with pickup at your hotel in Playa del Carmen or the Riviera Maya; depending on your location, departure time will be between 7am and 9am. Board an air-conditioned coach for the 40 mile (65 kilometer) trip to the Tulum Archeological Site, a historic port with stone fortifications that look out across the Caribbean Sea.

Upon arrival at Tulum, explore the site on a two-hour guided tour. You’ll see the Temple of the Wind and the Temple of the Descending God, a pair of dramatic structures linked to ancient Maya beliefs—don’t miss the mysterious, upside-down figure that guards the doorway of the Temple of the Descending God.

Take in the religious paintings at the Temple of the Frescoes, then continue to Halach Uinic and the Great Palace, a ruined structure that might once have housed Tulum’s nobles. Following the guided tour, you’ll have one hour on your own, with the option to stay at the site to take photographs, or to swim at the white sand beach that stretches out from the ruins.

At the end of your time at Tulum, meet back up at the bus for the return trip to Playa del Carmen, where this tour concludes at roughly 2:45pm.

This tour was nice. We got a good description of the ruins, and then had some free time to ourselves to eat, and shop. The food inside one of the Mexican restaurants was excellent! We then were transported back to the hotel and it went...More

knowledgeable guide

Our guide gave us so much interesting information on the tour. When I returned home I ordered two books for more information on the Mayans, which is really out of character for me.

Not dumb. They do accept usd, however it was always tougher to get back exact change in usd than in pesos. So if you have a lot of smaller bills you’d be fine.
