On Thursday morning, we woke up at 6:30am to get breakfast and make our way to our 7:30am bus. It took about an hour and a half to get to the Tulum ruins after stopping at other hotels to pick more people up.
When we got to the ruins we were given umbrellas to shield us from the sun because it was an extremely hot day. Our tour guide took us on a 10-minute walk from our meeting spot at the local store, to the entrance of the ruins.
Once we went in, our guide, Ada, stayed with us for about an hour telling us different facts about the ruins. She was extremely informative. You could tell she loved doing this for a living. After she told us about the ruins, she gave us an hour and a half to do our own thing before we had to meet again.
We were told there was a beach we could access from the ruins, so we had planned to go there. However, it was such a windy day and the tide was right in, so we decided to walk around the ruins a bit more. We walked along the cliff line, through a jungle bit, and then back to the mini town.
Chris and I grabbed a snack before meeting our group back at the store. It was an amazing tour and a must see if you visit Tulum, Mexico.
