Arriving at Playa del Carmen from Cozumel by tender, relax in the comforts of your air conditioned bus as you enjoy a scenic drive to Tulum while your English speaking native guide offers a colorful narration and explains the history and life in the Yucatan as well as the mysterious Mayan culture. (There will be a 20-minute rest room stop along the way to the ruins.)
When you arrive at the ruins, your guide will escort you through the walled Mayan city and share the secrets, facts, myths, and legends of this long forgotten society
After experiencing Tulum, it's time to get back on the bus and enjoy a cold complimentary drink on your ride back to Playa del Carmen, where the hourly scheduled Federal ferry will return you to downtown Cozumel. You may decide to spend some time shopping downtown. From there, decide when to take a taxi back to your ship on your own.
Note: By Mexican law, there is a fee of approximately $8.00 USD to $10.00 USD at Tulum for guests who bring video cameras. This fee is not included in the price of the tour. It is recommended that participants bring a bottle of water with them. Please wear light clothing and sensible shoes as the visit to the ruins involves a certain amount of walking over rough terrain. It is also suggested that you bring a sun hat for protection. The ferry ride to and from Playa del Carmen takes about 45 minutes each way. Please note that, inclement weather and rough seas may cause seasickness on the ferry ride, so guests should take the necessary precautions.
This tour ends downtown, and does not include transportation back to the vessel (i.e. taxi, etc.). This is to allow guests free time downtown and to return at their discretion.
