Discover the clifftop ruins of a Mayan city, retrace the footsteps of a lost civilisation and relax on the white sand beach.

Hop on a ferry and cross the water to mainland Mexico and the beautiful Caribbean beaches of Playa Del Carmen. Stepping into the sprawling ruins of Tulum, you’re in the heart of the only Mayan seaport. Seven hundred years ago, traders hawked jade and turquoise here. Today, many fascinating structures reveal ancient secrets. Explore the Castillo that presides on the clifftop. Admire the Temple of the Frescoes. Marvel at the Mayan’s knowledge of astrology and discover The Temple of the Descending God, dedicated to Mayan belief in extra-terrestrial life.

Round off your adventures with free time to enjoy the breakers on the beach or explore the vibe of Playa Del Carmen.
