Departure Time

7:30 AM
After morning pickup at your Playa del Carmen or Cancun hotel, ride in a comfortable, climate-controlled minivan to Tulum. 

Perched high on a cliff, this ancient city overlooking the Caribbean Sea is one of the best-preserved Maya sites. Learn about the Maya society that thrived there in the 13th-15th centuries during a guided tour. Explore the site at your leisure before departing for your next stop. 

Before heading on to Coba, stop at a cenote, an underground sinkhole created by limestone erosion and filled with pristine water. After a refreshing dip, travel to a local restaurant for lunch. Enjoy Yucatanean specialties, including quesadillas and salad. Sip water, soda or beer with your meal. After lunch, depart Tulum for Coba.

Travel to Coba, deep in the rain forest amongst lush vegetation and serene lagoons. Once a Maya trade center, Coba now boasts many significant ruins. 

Take a guided tour, including a climb to the top of the tallest Mayan pyramid in the region, Nohoch Mul. Look out over the tops of the rain forest canopy before descending to explore the other stone buildings, such as the Ball Court. Wander the site on your own for another hour before boarding the bus back to your hotel in Playa del Carmen or Cancun after a long day of discovering Maya culture and civilization.

Very good- and very long -- tour

Our tour guide was friendly and helpful. However, it is a LONG day, so I do not recommend this for small children. At all. We were on our tour for close to 12 hours that day. It was no one's fault -- there was a lot of roadwork being done. When you go to the cenote swim, make sure they tie you into the vest, because the cenote management staff didn't do ours, and they ended up constantly moving up-- very uncomfortable. By the way, one of the best parts was the very short 45 min we got to spend in Playa del Carmen. Wish we'd had more time! Great experience overall.

the ticket said that we’d be picked up outside the hotel at 7:30 AM. we were there waiting for an hour, tried calling multiple different phone numbers and only got through after calling about 8 different times. a lady on the phone said she spoke to me the day before to reconfirm a new pickup time of 7:10 AM but that is not true. don’t waste your time or money

Not only did our tour last from 7:10am to 9:30pm due to disorganization, our bus also broke. We had to pick up numerous groups as well. The tour is not a bad tour, it’s just unnecessarily long. And disorganized.

The trip was amazing. The tour guides were great and very personable. It was a very long day, so get a good night's rest before you go, but worth it. Do bring some extra snacks to have along the way. The buffet was delicious, but it was just one meal in a full day of activities.

Good Expierence but much longer day than expected with long waits

The trip was so-so, I'm very glad I saw the Tulum ruins and the cenote was beautiful and a wonderful experience, but the layout of the trip could be improved and it was a very LONG day. To start, our primary guide, Raymundo, was great and very knowledgable; the things I think should be changed were not things he would or could control. As for negatives, we were picked up by van and taken to a location where we waited for a bus that would take the whole tour group to Tulum, and we waited quite a while for the bus. From pick-up from our hotel to actually leaving for Tulum it was over 2 hours, which was frustrating and we would have just taken a taxi to the second location if we knew we would be waiting so long. Next, was on the website it said the tour was 11 hours (so we should have been back in Cancun around 6:30pm); however we were not back until 9:30pm. I believe waiting for the bus was part of the delay, but I'm not sure what else lead to such a big discrepancy. Also, lunch was very late, like 3:30pm, and we were very hungry and it was VERY rushed, maybe 20 minutes or so for everyone to go through the buffet and eat and use the restroom, etc. Lastly for negatives, the time in Playa del Carmen was a complete waste and just made the day longer and we just spent more money than we needed to. On the way back from the cenote to Cancun, you stop in Playa del Carmen for about an hour. However, it's just a tourist strip of souvenior shops and restaurants. It was already very late so we paid for dinner at a restaurant because we were hungry, but would have rather kept driving and not stopped in Playa del Carmen, and just eaten dinner at our all-inclusive and saved the money. As for positives, again the guides and driver were great and we really enjoyed them! Raymundo was our primary guide, and Oscar was one of the assisting guides. The tours at Tulum and Coba were good, well-paced, with just enough history lessons, and you had free time at each to explore and take pictures. At Coba it was really fun using the "mayan-uber" aka carts pushed by bicyclists to see the ruins. However, this does cost a little extra and wasn't mentioned in the online description just as a heads up. Lastly the cenote was wonderful! I've been to 2 other cenotes and this was by far the biggest, prettiest, and most fun. Honestly, the cenote alone made the whole trip worth it for me. But just fyi you do have to rent a lifevest if you want one, but they are not required, unlike at other cenotes. Overall, a good tour and I'm glad I saw the ruins and cenote, but maybe would have tried to find another tour that wasn't quite as long with as much waiting around in the beginning.
