Ah, Tulum. This ancient walled city perched on the edge of a cliff in Quintana Roo overlooking the Caribbean ocean in Mexico is quite a sight in person. Tulum's greatest attraction is its location. It stands on a bluff facing the rising sun looking out on views of the Caribbean that are nothing less than spectacular.
The ruins site is compact and easy to explore independently in only an hour or so. Although they are very popular with organized tour groups, they are still worth a visit for independent travelers as well and the various structures, as well as large iguanas everywhere, make for some fantastic photo opportunities.

super Guide für knapp 5€
Hat super funktioniert: App in der Unterkunft runtergeladen, mit Passwort eingewählt und vor Ort via GPS passend zur aktuellen Position auf der vorgeschlagene Rundtour Infos vom englischen Audioguide erhalten :-)
This app was super helpful because of the location-sensing feature.I followed the app’s route to go from one pin to the next and it worked very well. I liked that I could go at my own pace. It took us two hours as we listened to everything. Pls charge fully before you start
Great tour of Tulum. My wife and I visited the ruins and really enjoyed the app. It helped us navigate through the crowds and taught us so much about the Ruins/Mayan history. I would highly recommend.
Me and my family visited Tulum because we love archaeological sites. Since we wanted to avoid crowded tour we used this app and we all loved it. We learned so much about the Ruins and also about Mayan history which truly added the experience. The audio stories were solid.
Great Experience and Works Offline
Way better than expected. $50 for a guide or $4 for the app? We heard the guides and they were saying exact same things the app had and the app had even more historical stories on Mayan people. Allow yourself to take as much as time you want at each point instead of running after the guide. Every bit was good! I also bought the Chichen and Coba tours. Exceptional.
