Dagstur till Tulum och Xel-Ha från Cancun
Tulum's close proximity to Cancun and the azure backdrop of the Caribbean Sea makes it the most visited of the Mayan sites in the Yucatan. Tulum flourished in late Post-classical times with buildings dating back to the 12th century. It was once an important trading port, one of the few Mayan cities still inhabited when the Spaniards arrived. Mounted on the edge of a cliff, this abandoned city towers above the beautiful white sandy beach, where the sun rises from the sea above the city walls.

Loved this excursion. Our guide was amazing and full of lots of fun facts. WE loved Xel-Ha and would visit this park again..
Comfortable buses, water bottle with lanyard provided, engaging and knowledgeable guide.
Tulum is worth seeing. Xel-Ha is the main attraction. I swam from the sea, upstream, for what seemed to be a mile. Beautiful experience. Saw many fish and a stingray.
