Tulum is the only archeological ruin facing a beach. As a result the views are exceptional. You can see the crystal and torquiest waters. It’s definitely hot but the views are worth every picture. If you drive you should park on a nearby parking lot...More
In order to avoid the crowds of tourists who deliver the cruise ships from 9:30 in the morning, we recommend a very early breakfast and an early arrival at the parking in front of the area at around 8:00 am.

The views were amazing, I mean what are we even reviewing here? The Mayan temples were incredible, the ocean views and beaches, jaw dropping. But if I were to rate my actual experience here it wasn’t all too special. I’ll have to revisit later in...More
We really enjoyed visiting the Tulum ruins. Large site with lots of structures and informative plaques in Spanish & English.
Beautiful views of the ocean from the cliffs. Beach was not open when we were there. Bring BUG SPRAY and water.

As of 28 August 2019 the entry fee for Tulum was 75 Pesos (approximately $3.75 USA per person). Be sure to purchase your entrance ticket at the entry booth so that you do not get scammed. If you drive, do not purchase tickets from the vendors in the parking lot. The cost is very inflated (200 Pesos or more - $10.00 USA) or the tickets are not valid for entry into the site. Use caution. Hope this was helpful and enjoy for trip to the site.

In Tulum, you will find stairs and unlevel grounds during all the route and is a long walk. There some small stores and cafes outside the archeological site. For more visual reference, you can search for videos on YouTube about the place and excursions to Tulum, and Google Maps, to see the surrounding area.
