Getting to know the Mayan ruins is an activity you should do at least once in your life because this is one of the things you have to see if you want to know more about the history of the ancient Mayan culture and how they developed in the territory.

It will probably also cause you some conflict to know how it is that knowing one of the most important areas of the city will be fundamental for you to live a completely new experience with every place you meet here.

First of all, you must acquire a Shuttle from Cancun to playa del Carmen that will take you from Playa del Carmen to the archaeological site you want to visit:



Tulum is not the most important archaeological site on this list. However, I dare to talk about it as the best because we all know that if you travel with children. The worst thing is to have them walk around for a long time, so you must consider the possibility that this is the first place you visit during your visit to the Mayan Riviera and its surroundings.

In addition to seeing ruins and ancient stones, children will love to swim in the beach that is located downstream of the old archaeological site as it is a beach paradise. You can not miss this beautiful tour, also will like to see the Papantla flyers and travel by train to the entrance of the archaeological site.

Chichen Itza


Chichen Itza is the most important of this list, and it is not difficult to know why it is so essential if you start by understanding a little more about how this ancient Mayan city began to be so relevant to one of the seven wonders of the world.

You will know the great pyramid of Kukulcan. In this way, you will love to see the greatness of this site, one of the advantages is that the area is massive, so children will not be bored to visualize at all times different scenarios about the city.

Don't forget to reward their patience by taking them to one of the nearby cenotes.


Uxmal is not a well-known site, in fact, many of the people who travel to see the ruins do not know they existed until they bought a tour to the site, do not miss this adventure.

One advantage of visiting this site is that it is not so big, so your children will not be bored, as the tour is short, however, you will see many things that will surely attract your attention!!
