Full description

Discover the Tulum Archaeological Site and a picturesque cenote on a guided tour from Cancún. Learn about the ancient Mayan civilization as you see what remains of buildings such as the pyramid temple of El Castillo.

Start with a pickup from your hotel in Cancún. Travel to Tulum and explore one of the last cities built by the Mayans on an express tour of the archaeological site.

See the pyramid temple of El Castillo, the Temple of the Frescoes, and Templo Dios del Viento (Temple of the God of the Winds). You can then explore on your own and take in the views of the Caribbean Sea. Then, take some free time at the beach in Tulum.

Afterward, make a quick stop at a cenote where you will be able to refresh yourself with a swim at this natural sinkhole. Finally, relax on the journey back to your hotel in Cancún.

Ricardo was a comfortable bus driver and drove us well through the tour. Our tour guide was not only professional but also funny. He gave us a lot of information about Tulum without forgetting the humor. This made the tour interesting and entertaining. We were 4 adults and 2 children (age 5+6) and the children participated very well. The highlight of the tour was swimming in a cenote. We can warmly recommend Ricardo and Edwin.

It was good, but actually the guided tour lasts about 30 min in Tulum and then it goes to the cenotes and back home, it wouldn't be bad if they offered more information by that I mean more history of the places, since they only tell the main thing without going into depth or giving details that would make the place more interesting. What if the guide was fantastic. One bad thing is that it took us 4 hours to return from the cenote to our hotel, that was horrible, since there was a bit of a traffic jam and we had to go through all the hotels leaving different people in each one of them. I would recommend parents not to take small children's strollers or bicycles because it is not accessible and I have seen parents have a really hard time since there are stairs and the terrain is uneven. The driver was super friendly and professional.

Nice Trip to see Mayan Temples and swim in an Cenote. Jorge (the driver) and Sammy (the tour guide) are a good team and know how to make it a good day. Sammy explained much about the Temples and is a very friendly guide. Please notice that the tour takes up to 8-9 hours - not 5 hours, but we would recommend it.
