Tulum Ruins (7 hours)
After morning pickup at your Playa del Carmen or Cancun hotel, ride for approximately 2 hours 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 Mayan sites. Learn about the Mayan society that thrived there in the 13th-15th centuries during a 45-minute guided tour. Explore the site at your leisure for an hour 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.

Coba Ruins Tour (4.5 hours)
Travel about 60 minutes to Coba, deep in the rainforest amongst lush vegetation and serene lagoons. Once a Mayan trade center, Coba now boasts many significant ruins. 

Take a 1-hour 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 rainforest 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 Mayan culture and civilization.

Super Saver This is the most ironic thing I have ever read in my life. If you want to have a day where you are extremely overcharged for what is a terrible day out then go for it. To start our day off we were told to be ready for pick up at 7:20 AM, gets to 8AM no sign of the bus and then after ringing the company 4 times we kept being told its 5 minutes away. Eventually they then told us to walk all the way to another hotel to be picked up so the day already was not off to a good start. Now my first issue begun, the tour we had been booked on had around 60-70 people on which is not what I had thought I was paying for and from reviews and the extortionate price we had expected small group sizes. The first drop off is Tulum which was a lovely small ruin however the entry fee is 70 pesos around 5, if you actually add up the cost of all the places visited it comes to 140 pesos for entry fees per person around 10. Granted lunch is included however it was a buffet lunch in a dirty flooded restaurant right next to the Coba ruins and the food itself was incredibly below average. The tour is nowhere near the 75 per person we were made to pay and I would have been reluctant to even pay 30.

Strongly do not recommend going.

Alexis, a native Mayan of the Yucatan Peninsula, is so well-educated and makes this tour so much fun! Our van had 12 people, a nice small group and each site Coba, the Cenote swim and lunch, and Tulum was different, each with it's own appeal and each with it's own history. It's a pretty long day...about 11 hours...but well worth it for anyone interested in history and culture. Don't miss it!

Great Tour. Driving was a little scary but I think that might be how it is in Mexico. The Coba ruins was amazing and we were able to climb to the top. Lunch was tasty and the cenote was beautiful to see. We did not get in the water however. Great tour guide !!

Mauricio and Tito were great! Tulum is super packed but the views are nice. The tour guide was Mauricio and he was very nice and informative. Tito was a great driver. COBA WAS AMAZING!!! I loved being able to climb up the ruins.

Both Tulum and Coba ruins are pretty interesting to visit. It was a little rushed to visit both places in one day. Our tour guide and bus driver are professional and mostly on time. Cenote is ok to visit. The changing room and restaurant at cenote are not up to my previous Viator standard and expectation. The time in Cenote was a little too long. I wish I can stay in both Mayan ruins a little longer. Climbing Coba pyramid is a great experience. It was also fun riding Mayan limousine. Wish I can explore a bit more in Coba ruin. It was overall a good day trip.

We had a blast with our group. It was a large group but the guides were really helpful and happy to help with any other tours or places we wanted to visit! The only down side was that it was not an authentic Cenote but was man-made to look like a lazy river.

This tour was great. We loved Tulum and its unique remnants of the city it once was. Our tour guide, Luis Estrella, explained everything perfectly and knew each one of us in the group personally by the end. He was interested in each of us and our needs the entire time. The Cenote swim was much better than we expected- we cant wait to swim in another one! We loved Coba! The history is rich and our guides knowledge of the area at the time and the Mayan culture enhanced our experience and our relationship with the amazing civilization that once inhabited these parts. We definitely recommend this tour. We would love to have Luis Estrella as a tour guide for future excursions out of Cancun!

Luis and his staff were amazing hosts. He knew alot about all the ruins we visited so I appreciated all the cultural things that I learned from him while marvelling at the Mayan structures. There was nothing about the tour that I disliked. The bus ride was ultra comfortable, and spacious. The food served at lunch was delcious and I appreciate the time the hosts took to make those meals for us. The cenote we visited was a nice, refreshing surprise and I met some great people along the way. Definitely would recommend this tour for others to try!

Smaller groups are always better to me. Luis was so knowledgeable and passionate it was very impressive.
I would have preferred a little less time at this particular cenote, but very beautiful.
Also, we are foodies and most meals in Mexico on this trip were below our standards. We decided to be grateful for what we got.
