Mayan Ruins in Tulum

We will be staying at the Hotel Marina El Cid in Cancun in January. Has anyone been to the Mayan Ruins in Tulum? Do you recommend that and how much time would we need to see everything?

The ruins in Tulum are small but unique with a beautiful view over the ocean.. Recommend Coba for a broader experience. Look at them on gmaps and youtube.

We did the Tulum - Xel-Ha one day excusion through Entertainment-Plus.net

It was great.

You need about 90 minutes to tour Tulum. I recommend getting the guide because the stories are interesting. You also have the opportunity to swim in the water. The views are spectactular.

Xel-Ha was a lot of fun. Snorkeling, zip lining, etc. We left our hotel at 8am, it's about an hour and half from the hotel zone. That gave us plenty of time at Tulum but I would have liked more time at Xel-Ha, another hour or so would have been perfect.

I also recommend you see Xcaret but you would want a full day for that by itself.

We loved Xcaret. We have been there 2 times and are going back in October.
