When Is The Best Time To Visit The Tulum Ruins?
As the ruins of Tulum are the city’s most popular attraction and tourist destination, the site can get crowded. Visit early in the morning when the site first opens to avoid the crowds of tourist buses which typically arrive mid-morning or later in the afternoon, two hours before closing time. Because admission to the Tulum ruins is free on Sundays for residents of Mexico, you can expect heavy crowds; plan your visit during the week.
Where Can You Swim At The Tulum Archaeological Site?
The ruins’ location on the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, make the archaeological site a perfect secluded place to swim. Below the cliffs you’ll find a stretch of pristine white-sand beach where visitors can swim in the Caribbean or sunbathe.
