Default What's the best way to see the ruins in Tulum?

We are sailing soon on the Voyager and would like to know if the onboard excursions are the best way to tour the ruins? We have usually booked on-line private excursions for other ports, but I haven't heard anything about Tulum other than the onboard bookings. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Hi C

I would go with the tour. We did the combo with xel ha. It was pretty nice and that way you ensure getting back on time.

FYI- Make sure to take bug repellent on this shore excursion. I was swatting mosquitos the whole time the guide made us stand and listen to him talk! Finally, the woman who had brought hers took pity on me and let me use hers.

Because the tour is so long we stayed with the ship tour. If somethinghappened like the bus broke down or you missed the ferry the ship will wait for you.
We did the Tulum express and it was perfect for us. But it was a 2 hour travel time to get there and 2 hours back. 2 hours to spent at the ruins which were plenty enough. Theystop along a roadside sovereneir shop- save your oney because the same stuff canbe had on the pier when you get back for almost 75% cheaper then this place/

Thanks for the heads-up.It sounds like repellent is a must! It does make sense to book through the ship ( almost like having insurance ). Thanks again for the info!
