Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayans and remains one of the best preserved Mayan sites today. Its ancient ruins along the Caribbean Sea make it a compelling spot, popular with tourists.

The mystical pyramids of Tulum are just 5 minutes from the hotel and the entertainment, shopping and nightlife of Playa Del Carmen is 40 minutes away.

Your Optional Tour of Yucatan

Before heading to the Sunscape Akumal Beach Resort & Spa 4*, you may choose to extend your trip by adding a 4 day/3 night tour of the Yucatan, staying in 4* hotels with Bed & Breakfast dining.

Our members may choose to upgrade to a tour with 5* hotels at the next stage of the booking process for an additional fee.

Day 1: Cancun
After custom and luggage claim, you may exit the terminal and a representative will wait for you for meet and greet. Your transportation will wait for a quick transfer to a convenient located downtown hotel. Enjoy your first night at Cancun - there are plenty of options close by to dinner.

Day 2: Valladolid, Chichén Itzá, and Izamal
At the scheduled time, your driver will pick you up to start the adventure. We will start to visit the colonial village of Valladolid, at the state of Yucatán, where you will enjoy local specialties and visit the market and the main cathedral. The city is consider as one of the “Magic Towns” of Mexico. Close by, you may find cenotes (sinkholes) open for visit, so do not miss the opportunity for a refreshing swim. 

Reaching Chichén Itzá, go straight to the cashier for your tickets. Ask for a local certified guide, which is available in English and French. The site is a UNESCO World Heritage since 1988 and is also considered one of the seven Wonders of the Modern World.

Getting back on the road, ask your driver for a quick stop at Izamal, the “yellow city” and capture some beautiful pictures of the colourful houses! Then, you will find the capital of the state of Yucatán, Mérida. For a brief period, around the turn of the 20th century, Mérida was said to house more millionaires than any other city in the world, and the result of this concentration of wealth can still be seen today. Many large and elaborate homes still line the main avenue called Paseo de Montejo, though few are occupied today by individual families. Your hotel is centrally located, so you don’t need any transportation to enjoy a late afternoon walk to visit downtown. Make sure to stop by the Cathedral of San Idelfonso, the Plaza of Santa Lucía and the Montejo Avenue (called Paseo Montejo).
Day 3: Uxmal
Setting off early, you will head to the ancient Mayan city of Uxmal, considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Maya culture, located in the Puuc region of the eastern Yucatan Peninsula - it has even been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its significance. Close by, you also may wish to visit Kabah, another famous Puuc style archaeological site. Next to Uxmal, there are some restaurants to have lunch and a Cacao Museum, which is also worth a visit!

Day 4: Tulúm
From Mérida, we get back to the Riviera Maya through passing by another famous site, called Tulúm. These ruins are situated on 12m tall cliffs along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Tulúm was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. 

We end our services with drop off at your hotel in Playa del Carmen or Riviera Maya.

Please note: If you have opted for an offer which includes the Yucatan Mini Tour, a Chichen Itza tour is included in your itinerary, so it is not necessary to add this option to your booking on the Voyage Privé website.
