Tulum Ruins Sunset Tour

  • 6 hours
  • Hotel pick up

Fall in love with one of Mexico's best-preserved coastal Mayan fortresses in the splendour of golden hour: discover Tulum at sunset on this guided tour from Cancun.

Tulum Ruins Sunset Tour Itinerary

On the afternoon of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Cancun ready to begin your adventure back in time to pre-Columbian Mexico. Head south along the Caribbean coastline in the direction of Tulum, the site of a Mayan walled city constructed between the 12th and 15th centuries.

Following around a two-hour drive, during which you'll be able to enjoy the idyllic tropical scenery passing by, you'll arrive at the famous archaeological site, one of the best-preserved coastal Mayan sites in Mexico. You'll explore the ancient complex, located on a steep rocky cliff overlooking the sea, taking in the still-magnificent ruins of Mayan architecture and immersing yourself in the incredible history of the walled city.

Visiting at this time of day not only allows for a more peaceful stroll around the historic walled city - sharing the views with the majestic iguanas basking in the heat rather than with lots of other tourists - it also means you'll enjoy the ancient Castle and temples illuminated by the setting sun. Marvel at a spectacular sunset before making the return journey to your hotel in Cancun.

Summer sunset times

Please bear in mind that if you do this tour during summer, the sunsets around 7:30 pm and the archaeological site closes at 5 pm, so you will not see the sunset at the ruins.
