Description


Time-travel back nearly a thousand years to the paradise kingdom of Tulum on this Mayan Ruins of Tulum shore excursion. Travel comfortably by ferry and air-conditioned coach from your to this ancient Mayan site. Along the journey, enjoy a half-hour break to shop for local handicrafts at a local Mayan cooperative center, or simply stock up on refreshments.

Your adventure begins upon arrival at Tulum, where you can walk or take a trolley on the ¾-mile road to the entrance. Your expert guide escorts you and other Carnival cruisers on a fascinating narrated tour of the incredible walled city, perched dramatically on 50-foot-high cliffs. The three walls average 23 feet in thickness—making this one of the most well-fortified towns in Mayan history.

Suddenly, the past comes to life as you imagine the power of these ancient gods. Look up at the sculptured doorway of the Temple of the Descending God. This powerful carved figure seems to dive from the heavens into the earth beneath. In places, even the original color of the paintwork is still vibrant at the Temple of Frescoes.

Once your guided tour is over, you'll have plenty of time to explore Tulum on your own. Head to the imposing ruined castle—El Castello—perched on the cliff-top overlooking the Caribbean Sea, a fantastic spot for taking photographs. When you get up close, you can see the serpent-like columns, with the powerful carved tails supporting the roof and heads reaching to the floor.

Or you can just mull over the Mayan culture, as you relax on the tranquil white-sand beach in the shadow of El Castello. After your exhilarating trip, relax on the coach journey back with a light snack of complimentary bottled water, chips and peanuts. Back at the pier, you'll board a ferry for the cruise back to your Carnival cruise ship.
