About this Cozumel tour
Experience walking along a 13th century archaeological site on this historical all-day tour. The Mayan ruins are considered to be one of the most beautiful ruins left behind by ancient civilization, intricately built on top of a 15-meter high cliff above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. In Maya, Tulum means “wall”, thus the city earning this name due to its walled architecture. The ruins also serve as evidence of one of the few sites this ancient civilization ever built.
To get started on this experience along the ruins, make your way to the downtown Cozumel ferry peer to meet with your friendly guide. The adventure begins with a scenic 45-minute ferry ride to Playa del Carmen, where you’ll board an air conditioned vehicle and head towards Tulum.
