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.
