Description Tulum Turtles Tour

Tulum Magic PlaceTulum & Turtles Tour include the archeological zone of Tulum it is one of the most beautiful protected locations in the world


In 1842 Frederick Catherwood and John Lloyd Stephens the famous explorers/ archaeologists visited the Tulum area. Previously they had been in Uxmal, Palenque and Copán. They did not want to miss the opportunity to explore these exceptional ruins, the influence of Central Mexico. One of the most important buildings is called El Castillo and it is built in front of the sea, it is probably one of the oldest constructions in the city. Another extraordinary building is the Temple of the frescoes, the interior walls are decorated with paintings in predominantly gray and blue tones. These frescoes impressed Catherwood and Stephens who again confirmed their opinion regarding Mayan greatness.

The price includes taxes

INCREDIBLE, the protected natural area tax is already included

Tulum Magic Place As you can see, Tulum Turtles Tour includes Tulum where we visit this amazing place that is full of magic and mysticism. This and more stories will be told to you by our guides that will fill you with amazement, at the end of the tour you will have the opportunity if you wish to immerse yourself in the deep blue Caribbean sea at the foot of this archaeological site (access to the beach is the responsibility of the authorities of the archaeological zone).

Swim with Turtles

Akumal swimming with turtles One sometimes does not believe that it is so easy to see turtles in the wild, and sometimes they are skeptical about seeing them live and in full color. With Tulum Turtles Tour, believe me it is 100% real, you just need to swim a little away from the shore to be able to appreciate them in all their fullness. We guarantee that we will see turtles and not only that, as well as a gift if we are lucky we will also have the opportunity to admire manta rays, barracudas, cat sharks and many multicolored fish. Only here in Tulum Turtles Tour

Tulum Mayan City Akumal is located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, it has one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. Romantic for adults and fun for children, it is an incredibly beautiful beach, it is like a postcard of the beach of your dreams. Whether you are having a drink at a beach bar, or walking on the white sand between the palm trees, it is the best option and here in Akumal this option becomes a reality.

During the Tulum Turtles Tour we visit Akumal which is a beautiful bay with a lot of history from canyons of ancient wars, to surprising encounters with playful turtles, this place is simply amazing. It is a practically virgin beach because there are not many people and because it is surrounded by a reef the waves are minimal

Akumal turtle breathing The name Akumal in the Mayan language means "Place of turtles" much can be said of this place that has not already been mentioned, sun, sea and nature all located just 15 minutes from Tulum. Beautiful beach, beautiful town full of quiet places.

The water temperature is perfect, the turtles are eating all the time and rising to breathe, it will be the first thing you will see except for some fish. If you do not see any at first, swim to where there is a group of people, there are many turtles of all sizes and if you find a lonely one you can enjoy the sight all to yourself. As you enter the reefs you will see cuttlefish, mantas and millions of fish as well as reef formations, like brain coral.
