Tour Overview

WHAT YOU VISIT
- Mayan Ruins of Tulum
One of the best preserved Mayan ruins, Tulum (pronounced too-LOOM) is an ancient pre-Columbian Mayan kingdom built on cliffs above the Caribbean Sea. Tulum means "wall," and this protected, walled city was one of the very few of its kind that the ancients built and one of the last inhabited by the Maya.
Marvel at their construction as you walk past temples like El Castillo, The Temple of the Descending God, The Temple of the Water and the Temple of the Frescos, which showcases lavish figurines and used as the observatory to study the movement of the sun.

- Playa del Carmen
A tour of this charming coastal town reveals a sunny playground boasting alabaster-white beaches and a gentle surf.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Stop for a "selfie" at the famous Temple of the Frescoes lookout set on the edge of a sheer 40-foot cliff set against a backdrop of magnificent temples and bright blue Caribbean Sea.

SNACK
Before embarking on your tour of Playa del Carmen, relax with a snack of chips, chocolate, and bottled water.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Your coach will wind its way along rural roads, past charming villages and lush vegetation as you make your way to the cliff top ruins in the Caribbean coastal state of Quintana Roo.
