Default Runins of Tulum from Cozumel

Has anyone taken the excursion to see the Mayan ruins? Was most of the day used by travel to the site?

The bus ride down and back is long. Definitely not something you want to do on your own.

Default Thanks Nancy

We were concerned that the promoters may have underestimate the time it takes to travel to the site. If so, the excursion could easily turn into a six hour event. Is that true?

We went with a tour from the ship and it was a six hour excursion. And most of that time was travel, both the ferry to and from the mainland and the bus ride from town to Tulum and back.

The ferry alone is 30 minutes each way.

If you are going from Cozumel it will be a six hour day. The ferry ride is 45 minutes each way. That plus the travel time to and from Tulum and time at the site will make for a long day.

Take care,
Mike
