Meeting Point and tour description: We will meet at the Cozumel ferry pier 30 minutes before the ferry departs to Playa del Carmen*. After the comfortable 45-minute ferry ride, a new air-conditioned van will then take you for 45 minutes to Tulum where you will stay for about 1,5 hours.

Once in Tulum, you will have about a 10-minute walk to the entrance of the site. For approximately 1.5 hours, you will be tantalized with facts and tales of the ancient and modern Mayan life. We’ll discuss the culture as it was during the times of Tulum. Also taking time to examine the inscriptions and murals on the temples; describing the decoration, rich iconography and its meaning to the Mayan. If your schedule allows it, you may also have time for some shopping or a little dip at the beach before returning to Cozumel.

You have nothing to do to prepare for this tour as we have included everything – your English-speaking guide, round-trip ferry ride, round trip transportation to Playa del Carmen, and your admission to Tulum.

    My girlfriend and I will be taking an August 17 Royal Caribbean cruise that arrives in Cozumel on August 22 at 10am ship time and leaves at 7pm.

    Does this work with your Tulum excursions?

    Thank you,

    I hope that I am leaving this post in the appropriate place! In the off chance that I am not, I will be placing it in at least one other area of your website to ensure that our Guide Silvia is recognized for the outstanding service that she provided on our tour!!
    From the incredibly warm greeting we received right from the beginning, we knew we had a true treasure in our Guide Silvia! She was without a doubt one of the most informative Tour Guides to share her time with us in Cozumel. Her 25+ years in the industry were evident in the vast array of culture and history that she described as each scene came alive before us. Instead of commercializing the Mayans and the Tulum excursion into a “Long count calendar seminar,” Silvia’s enthusiasm and warmth brought each piece of history to life and made it personal for each member of the tour.
    I would highly recommend any tour that she is leading and this one with the view at the top—SPECTAULAR!! Definitely a great value and well worth the money.

    In order to do this excursion why does the cruise ship have to be at port for 8-9 hours if the tour is 5.5 hours? our ship will be there for 10, but i was just wondering because I would like to get back and see cozumel before getting back on the cruise ship. Thanks for your help.
