If you’ve got limited time in Tulum, enjoy two activities in one day on this 7-hour tour of the Tulum ruins and Cenote Yaxmul. Beat the crowds by arriving early at Tulum, home to Pre-Colombian Maya ruins flanked by the Caribbean Sea, and take a personalized tour of the site. Refresh with a swim in Cenote Yaxmul, an underground river rarely crowded by tourists, and enjoy lunch. Round-trip transport from your Tulum hotel is included on this small-group tour, limited to 10 people.
Your tour begins with hotel pickup in Tulum at 7am, where you’ll board a minivan destined for the mysterious Maya ruins. An early start guarantees less crowds and results in people-free pictures of the coastal landmarks.
During a personalized tour of the archaeological site, your guide explains the history of Tulum: a prosperous former city considered one of the Mayan empire’s most powerful. See highlights such as the Temple of Frescoes, covered in elaborate figurines of the ‘diving god’.
Capture photographs of Tulum’s stunning backdrop of tropical beaches and then return to the vehicle for the journey to Cenote Yaxmul, a crystal clear sinkhole surrounded by stalactites and suffused with natural light.
Refresh with a swim, sate your appetite with lunch, and then return to your Tulum hotel.
