Our cruise went to Costa Maya for about 8 hours. The port is friendly and easy to get around. This port is really great ! for those undecided about an excursion you can do it all here! Shopping, swimming, restaurants and bars. Very clean and friendly.
You can jump in the water at Tulum ruins and swim north to Boca Paila. Even if you are just going to visit the ruins it is still quite an experience to swim out on the ruins beach and see the ruins from the water. On a hot summer day it is a great way to cool off.
To answer your question though – yes, the ruins are safe . Chichen Itza is a bit of a trek (3 hours drive each way) and being inland in the jungle, it can be extremely hot there. Tulum is much closer and the setting is spectacular (the ruins are on top of a cliff).
The 3 sites you should visit in this area are: Chichen Itza, Izamal and Dzibilchaltun. If you stay near or in Progreso, [Reef Club], then you should visit Extempo. Chichen Itza is by far the most popular and most visited of all the ruin sites. This is due to its proximity to Cancun and the Riviera.
