In order to beat the crowds and midday sun, your tour begins at 5am with pickup from your Playa del Carmen hotel. From there, you’ll head straight to the Tulum ruins, an ancient Mayan archeological site overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Following a 1-hour drive, disembark at the ruins and relish relative solitude as you enter the site early and begin a tour led by an archeologist guide. Visit Tulum’s most significant landmarks and learn about the political, commercial, and military history of the once-thriving Mayan city, snapping crowd-free pictures of the ancient buildings.

Then, continue to Xel-Ha aquatic theme park to experience 20 water- and land-based activities. Snorkel with tropical fish, trek through the Yucatan jungle, float down a lazy river, and plunge into an ancient limestone cenote. Thrill seekers will grasp the opportunity to jump from the 15-foot (5-meter) Stone of Courage into the lagoon below.

At a time prearranged with your guide, return to your vehicle and relax until drop-off at your Tulum hotel.

Tulum: Wonderful tour guide Santiago, archeologist of Mayan decent. Took the early access trip April 30 but was very hot/humid. Bring your own water, but travel light for the walk no lockers at ruins. Could have used information about the little train that picks up at the exit and takes you back to the shops. It's a long, hot walk. Xel-Ha is new, extremely well-maintained with lockers, showers, towels, beach chairs, all the equipment, buffet with good food all day. Tanya and Ramon from Amigo Tours were great and their big bus was a/c. The original hotel pick up Amigo Tours Mexico van was awful and the final van pick up was late. Mix up at Xel-Ha about our tour. Experiencas Xcaret were on-site and they were very helpful and contacted Viator and Amigo Tours Mexico for us.

Tulum is beautiful. Our group was separated into English and Spanish, which left us with a small English group. Since our group was small, it was more informative. Our guide, Pablo, was friendly and attentive. Xel-Ha was a blast. I have never snorkeled with so many fish. We didn't pay for any extra activities and we were entertained the whole time there. The food at the buffet was also very tasty. The only thing I would change about this package is that 4hours at Xel-Ha is not enough time. 6hrs would have been adequate. We were rushed to leave and meet our driver on time. I rather not feel rushed when vacationing. Otherwise, it was a positive experience.
