The ruins from Tulum are unique. It was a seaport, trading mainly in turquoise and jade. It is the only Mayan city built on a coast - and this makes it so wunderful. There are lot of lizards taking a sunbath and acting for a photo. If you go there early in the morning, you will enjoy your visit more.

Get there early because there will inevitably be a line to get in. Walk through, look at the ruins and when you are all ruined out- walk down the stairs to the beach. It's heaven. An amazing view of the ruins while you wade in the water.

History on the beach...this is a beautiful example of a Mayan village and it has been painstakingly excavated. Take a tour to learn so much about this vibrant culture, and bring your beach clothes and towels for a visit to the beautiful beach.

Possibly the most gorgeous ruins in the world. Learn about Mayan history while gazing at the bright turquoise Caribbean water. When you finish exploring the grounds--or get too hot--follow the steps down to the white-sand beach and go for a swim.

Tulum Ruins is, without a doubt, a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind setting--Maya ruins set on dramatic cliffs that overlook the Caribbean Sea (and even a small beach that you can swim at on-site)--but the structures themselves do not begin to compare with the inland archaeological ruins, like nearby Coba, Chichen Itza, or Uxmal in terms of their grandeur. (The Tulum ruins, in fact, are pretty small in size and scope.) It also is the most visited archeological site in the Yucatan, which means it can get packed fast. If you go, go early to avoid the crowds (it opens at 8am). That way you'll get to enjoy wandering about the site, get that perfect photo opp, and even have a chance to swim on your own a bit.Recommended for:History Buffs

The ruins of Tulum, while smaller and less spectacular than those at Chichen Itza, make up for their lack of size with their location. The complex is set on a cliff above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Iguanas lounge on the walls. There are great beaches nearby. Truly amazing!

I spent a week in Cancun a few years back and decided to take the short trek to Tulum. It was absolutely well worth it. Our guide was really entertaining and engaging to our group.
