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!

After contacting support. Was given an alternate app and password to download everything. They made it Right. Although make sure you have everything downloaded before leaving. Phone service is spotty out in the jungle.

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!

Wow! Sounds like a fun day - glad we could be a part of it! This place is really amazing. We work hard to bring those stories to life and it’s great to hear that you enjoyed them. The Beach would have been breathtaking.

Worthless. Downloaded it 100% at my resort, drove 1.5 hours to Tulum. Entered the park and opened the app. Selected "start tour" and absolutely nothing happened. Walked around Tulum for over an hour with the app open and never a word of guidance. Closed and reopened it a few times, no change. Nothing but a blank screen with "Cancun" at the top. Ended up joining a guided tour already in progress and paid that guide.

Thanks for letting us know. It sounds like the tour map didn’t properly download while at the resort. Did you hit Start Tour after downloading and did it work then? And did it revert to a blank screen while at Tulum? Any details you can provide will help us resolve the issue: support@... Please let us know if you visit any of the Mayan Ruins again.
