Explore the Ancient Mayan Ruins of Tulum

Take a step back in time to Tulum, a 13th-century Mayan city located on the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in the south of Cancun. Many of Tulum's original structures have stood the test of time and are remarkably preserved as ancient ruins accessible to tourists.

Out of the many historical tours offered, none is better than our in-depth, half-day excursion here at Cancun Adventures. Led by experienced regional guides, our tour gives you the opportunity to get up close and personal with the many pieces of ancient Mayan history the ruins of Tulum have to offer—all while learning amazing archaeological facts along the way.

Discover the Rich History of the Walled City

Surrounded by amazing views of the Caribbean, this city is named after the Maya word for “wall”. Tulum was given this name as it is one of only a few walled cities built by the ancient civilization.

Get a glimpse of the mighty limestone seawall that has stood for nearly a thousand years, stand in the shade of structures with history etched in their very stone, and enjoy Playa del Carmen's brilliant tropical climate. If you're looking for a quality educational and cultural tour of the Mayan ruins, there is no better choice than a visit to Tulum.
