Full description
After your pickup, ride along jungle-fringed roads to Tulum, a walled Maya city perched on the coast above the crashing waves of the Caribbean. En route, your guide shares facts about the ancient Maya and the trade routes that crisscross the Yucatan. Once you arrive, enter the archaeological site to explore the mysteries of this fascinating and well-preserved city. Listen to theories about Maya rituals, worship, and daily life as you walk around the site's clifftop Castillo. From the site, you can look out over the coast and Tulum's famous stretch of long white sand. After your tour, have some free time to take photos, go for a walk along the beach, or take a dip in the balmy turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Lastly, travel a bit into the jungle to witness an ancient cenote. Take a refreshing dip in this impressive natural wonder before the return ride to back to your pickup location.

I really enjoyed this trip, we were a modicum sized group but we had a lot of fun and we enjoyed every minute of the trip. The tour leader Sandro and his team did a fabulous job in all means. They were welcoming, nice, knowledgeable and full of humour. I recommend strongly travelling with Sandro.

Die Tour mit unserem Guide Thomas war sehr cool & empfehlenswert. - Dauer: 8-9 Stunden - Die Natursteuer war aber bei 300 MXN oder 15$ USD, Statt 10$ USD. - Tulum Ruine ist sehr interessant, jedoch touristisch komplett überlaufen und überteuert. - Die Cenote ist sagenhaft und wunderschön. - Preis/Leistung ist Klasse von dieser Tour und nicht so viele Extrakosten

Unser Guide Tomas hat den Tag sehr interessant und spannend gestaltet. Er hat uns miteinbezogen und viel Wissen mit uns geteilt. Ein absolutes Highlight war die Cenote. Auch hier hat Tomas uns sehr viel erzählt und hat sich um unser Wohlbefinden und unsere Sicherheit gesorgt. Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Die Cenote ist leider zu dunkel, um eigene Fotos machen zu können. Die Fotos, die vom einem Cenote-Mitarbeiter in 10 Minuten (ca. 15 Stück) gemacht wurden, sind sehr schön aber mit 30 USD für unseren Geschmack zu teuer. Es ist aber völlig in Ordnung, wenn man die Fotos nicht kaufen möchte.
