Beautiful and unforgettable place to visit May 21, 2011
The Tulum archaeological is one of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites. Its proximity to the modern tourism developments along the Mexican Caribbean coastline and its short distance from Cancun has made it the most popular Maya tourist site in the Yucatan. Daily tour buses bring a constant stream of visitors to the site. It is popular for the picturesque view of the Caribbean and a location just 128 km (80 miles) south of the popular beach resort of CancĂșn.

A large number of cenotes are located in the Tulum area such as Maya Blue, Naharon, Temple of Doom, Tortuga, Vacaha, Grand Cenote, Abejas, Nohoch Kiin and Carwash cenotes and cave systems.

Adventure Maya ruins of Tulum Apr 21, 2011
To be honest the maya ruins of Tulum are not very adventurous and moreover its really crowded by tourists.

If you've been to Tikal (Guatemala) or somewhere else you'll be disappointed.

However we made the ruins being an adventure....

After a wonderfull day at the beach you can walk in the direction to the ruins on the waterfront. You will be stopped by big and rough rocks and you have to climb up and down and jump etc. Finally you come into a-kind-of-jungle. You continue and then you'll see the fence and a wall of the ruins. Climb and jump again...and tadaaa you are standing just infront of the ruins and in a crowd of tourists.

When we left the ruins we felt bad because we didn't pay the entrance fee. So we donated some money...

Must See Ruins May 30, 2008
This ancient city was an important port in pre-Columbian America and is a must see attraction in the Yucatan Peninsula. The ruins are relatively small and the entire city can be seen in less than one hour but there is no reason to speed through.

The iguana filled ruins are too fragile to traverse but it won't stop you from taking spectacular photos. Be sure to bring a bathing suit. The beach is small and current rough but it is a great place for body surfing.

Cabs (will cost about 30 pesos from downtown and 40 pesos to return to town) drop you off about a quarter mile from the ruins you can walk or take a tractor pulled cart to the sight for $2. The ride is worth $0.50 and your better off walking unless you have trouble physically walking that distance.

You can get a guided tour for an additional charge. I didn't take guided tour and can't give an opinion about the quality of the guided tour.
