Tulum Half Day Tour
From : 59.00 USD
This guided half-day outing takes you to the archaeological site of Tulum, a gem in a privileged location, rising over the aquamarine waves of the Caribbean Sea. You’ll also have free time to explore the white-sand beach below the ruins on this quick but thorough exploration of a Riviera Maya must-see.
Enter a place full of history
After being picked up at your resort and arriving to the site, a guide will accompany you through the ruins of Tulum. You'll learn about the history and customs of Tulum, whose marvelous ancient structures rise from a grassy plain running up to the coastline atop a cliff. From there, you'll be looking out toward the vivid turquoise colors of the Mexican Caribbean.
It’s an archaeologist's dream, with beautifully preserved structures and a rich social history, being one of the last cities that the Mayan people built and lived in. Feel the bygone days come alive again as you begin to explore the different ruins Tulum has to offer.
View Tulum’s incredible temples
Walk up the pathway to the top of the cliff to see 'El Castillo' ('The Castle'), often referred to as 'The Lighthouse' because it guided incoming ships. Take time to see the partially restored mural at the 'Templo de las Pinturas' ('Temple of Paintings'), where you can admire what’s left of actual Mayan murals that adorned the temple. These and other highlights of one of the last Mayan cities will surely impress you.
Swim in a gorgeous beach
You can also use some of your free time to swim in one of the most beautiful spots on the Riviera Maya — right by the ruins. The pristine Caribbean waters, and amazing views of the temple from the beach below, make this a must on any visit to Tulum.
When your half-day excursion is finished, your air-conditioned transfer will take you back to your resort, giving you the rest of the afternoon to do as you please.
