RUINS & CENOTES

Tulum Ruins

The ancient beachside ruins of Tulum perch on cliffs overlooking the sea with a white sand beach nestled at the foot of the crumbled buildings known as the “Walled City”. While they aren’t the biggest in the Mayan Riviera their pure energy attracts many spiritual seekers who revel in the unity of age-old tumble-down stone structures and powerful natural surroundings.

Cenotes

The Yucatan is spotted with underground sinkholes formed by water percolating through the soft limestone of the region, resulting in delightful snorkeling and diving explorations in the numerous area cenotes, some deep and mysterious and others much like swimming ponds frequented by locals.

Cenote Cristal

Swim and snorkel at this small pond-like cenote surrounded by jungle just 4 km south of Tulum on the right.

Cenote Escondido

A 2 km jungle path leads to the beautiful, secluded Esconido, found 4 km south of Tulum on the left side surrounded by dense foliage. Some great stone formations afford good scuba conditions. One of the least known cenotes in the area.

Grand Cenote

Located 5 km from Tulum on the road to Coba, this huge cenote has steps that lead to a semi-circle shaped cenote with several small passages, caverns and tree roots stretching from the opening down to the water. This cenote features a bowl shaped deep end and a covered shallow end that retreats into a cave, and is famed for clear waters and near perfect visibility. 

HALF DAY TRIP OR LONGER

If you can manage to take yourself away from the specuatular beach and venture out, you will be greatly rewarded!  Experience the most blissful way to see the beauty and wildlife of the Sian Ka’an biosphere with a serene lagoon kayaking tour, history buffs journey to the heart of the Mayan kingdom at the ruins of Chichen Itza and Coba.

Half Day Trips or Longer:
- Coba Ruins
- Ek Balam Ruins
- Chichen Itza Ruins
- Coastal Village of Akumal
- Coastal City of Playa Del Carmen
- Colonial Town of Valladolid
- City of Merida
- Swimming with The Wale Sharks
- Fly Fishing or Deep Sea Fishing

Coba

The acient Mayan city of Coba - perhaps the largest city in the Mayan world - that once housed as many as 50,000 people a millennium ago lies 42 km to the west of Tulum.  These ruins house a perfectly preserved ball court, stunning pyramid and excellent pathways that marked where the ancient world's first highways constructed by the Mayans for trade and political interaction some 1,300 years ago.  Follow the Boca Paila that leads back toward Tulum, cross over the main highway 307 and contunue folowing the signs to Coba.

Chichén Itzá

Chichén Itzá, now one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, is an exceptional fusion of three different periods with two main styles: the Mayan and the Toltec influence. Its cenote (cenote Sagrado), at a depth of 15 metres, has been said to contain almost 170 skeletons. It also hosts the largest ball court in the Mayan Kingdom, measuring 185 meters long and 68 meters wide. One of the most frequented archaeological sites in the Yucatan, Chichén Itza was once a great city whose oldest remains date back to the classic Maya Period (7th to 10th centuries A.D.) and now features about 30 excavated ruins open to the public. The ruins are approximately 3 hours drive from Tulum toward Merida.
