Welcome to the narrated walking tour of the ancient Mayan Tulum Ruins in México!

Tulum Ruins
Break out your Indiana Jones hat, grab your whip, and get ready to venture into some ancient Mayan temples! These coastal ruins were once a mighty seaside fortress, and they still hold plenty of secrets. Let’s uncover them!

Explore the remnants of a once-powerful civilization and learn about their culture and technologies, like the ingenious hurricane warning system that alerted them to approaching storms! Piece together the grim, complex religion that governed the Mayans and the fascinating rituals they performed to honor their gods.

All the while, admire the awe-inspiring constructions like the Temple of the Descending God and The Castle, and hear about their significance to the Mayan people. Archaeologists have been at work for years deciphering the secrets of this place, and by the time you’ve completed your tour, you’ll feel like you were right there alongside them from the start!

Excellent location sensing guide

This app was super helpful because of the location-sensing feature. It worked almost perfectly.... the blue dot is your location (it’s close to accurate, sometimes it moves randomly but give it a few seconds to become normal) and the red pins are the different interesting ruins inside Tulum. Just make sure you download and test everything before you get there. Reception at Tulum is terrible. I followed the app’s route to go from one pin to the next and it worked very well. I liked that I could go at my own pace. Tulum doesn’t have as much stuff as Chichen Itza but the app has plenty of “filler” about Mayan history and culture which helps. There’s also a tour option in Spanish, which I didn’t use, but I thought that was a nice touch.

Much better tour with this app vs with a guide

This was our second trip to Tulum in the last 6-7 years. First time, we had hired a guide to go with us. This time, we used this app. It was a huge difference. Guide was in too much of a rush to take the next group. His accent was a bit odd for our kids. Instead, we enjoyed the app really well. There was no rush. It was a pleasant experience. It took us two hours as we listened to everything. Pls charge fully before you start.

Wonderful Experience using the App

We arrived very early when there was no crowd and no guides as well. So we looked for an alternative and we found out this app which was extraordinary. We did the tour on our pace which is the reason we came in early to avoid crowds. While listening to Audio stories and seeing those beautiful videos felt like we were in the past. It took us 2 hours and then we went off to the beach!
