The Tulum Ruins are a must-do when here. This ticket saves you waiting in line at the ruins. However, you have to know where to pick it up. I got sent a message with incorrect coordinates to pick the tickets up. However, the man at the store told me where to go and it was just around the corner. You’ll want to go to “Viva Mexico TULUM souvenirs” on Google maps. It’s the largest shop with the tall ceiling, right next to the TULUM sign. Head inside and go to the checkout desk at the side and they’ll give you your ticket. Very easy and saves time, would recommend, just hope they update the instructions soon.

This was a great experience. The ruins are an awesome place to spend half a day learning about the history and photographing the beautiful surroundings. There are lots of iguanas lazing around on the ruins which was so cool to see. I would suggest bringing water, hat or even umbrella if you go in summer months as it can be very hot. Overall an epic day :) . I would definitely recommend this tour as skipping the line (30min wait) was worth it. Pick up the tickets form Viva México Tulum Souvenirs.

A really beautiful Maya site. It's really worth it. You just have to be there very early (8 a.m.), otherwise the many tourists will run over you

Very convenient. Fast! Beautiful ruins and landscape! Read carefully the previous reviews for the meeting point. Otherwise. Perfect!
