  • Very pretty. Recommend to rent bikes and ride around. Maybe not necessarily worth a guided tour but it's absolutely worth seeing. The structures are just incredible. We couldn't climb the pyramid...

  • Do it with a tour guide. They explain it further than just looking at ruins but their actual historical relationship. And Mayan culture is so interesting you'll want to hear it all. I loved our trip there. It's amazing it see what humans are capable of.
  • Tulum was unfortunately closed Because of the pandemic. But this place is just as amazing. And you get the gist of what the temples were actually like back in the day n Architecturally stunning, staff is friendly and polite & informative. It is fun to take the bikes and take a stroll through the jungle.
