Full description

Discover the Mayan ruins of Tulum on a tour from Playa del Carmen. Delve into a jungle oasis for a swim in a cenote to complete your perfect day trip. After pickup from Playa del Carmen, travel to Tulum to see some of the most well-preserved in the region. Enjoy their magnificent setting atop a cliff overlooking the sea.

Explore this ancient walled city where the Mayans used to maintain control of this fascinating port town. Be escorted by your guide who will provide more information about the history of the site. Take spectacular photographs of the area. Then, enjoy a swim in a Riviera Maya cenote, which was once considered an entrance to the underworld. These limestone sinkholes are unique features of the Yucatán Peninsula, formed over the millennia and creating magical landscapes of stalactites and stalagmites in caves in the lush jungle.

Nice with a half day trip. To have time to see most and best and then back. We got to see and hear about the Mayan culture, see ruins and the fantastic beach in Tulum. Then we finished with a brisk walk back to go to a cenote and swim!

Good trip overall

We enjoyed the trip however we were spoken to quite rudely by one of the couriers. There was not enough room on the truck back from the cenote so we had to wait for the next one. We were then spoken to like it was our fault that we were late back. If you put too many guests on a trip this is what happens and it is not acceptable to speak to them in that manner. Spoilt an otherwise good day.

It was said in advance that you would be picked up from the hotel but it turned out not to be the case. The guide arrived 20 minutes late at the meeting point. The mayas are beautiful to see but the cenote was a bit disappointing
