A two-hour drive from Cancun is Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most visited of all Yucatan archaeological sites. The highlight is the 82-foot-tall (25-meter) El Castillo pyramid, which guests can scramble up for unparalleled views of the site and jungle beyond.

While the majority of Cancun is pretty safe , there are some sketchy areas that tourists should avoid. These areas are the main hub for serious crime. Anywhere at night: Keep in mind that you’re still in Mexico. Walking around at night might not be the best idea.
The best time to visit Cancún is from December to April during the peak season. Even though the crowds are heavier, you’ll experience near-perfect weather and find some of the cheapest flight and room rates for a winter getaway at the beach.

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.
If you prefer to go on your own with no guide, the cost of entrance is just 80 pesos = $3-4 USD. Because the ruins are a little removed from the parking lot, a folkloric train is available to take you to the entrance and is another 20 pesos = $1 USD per person.

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).

Its easily a 4 or 4 1/2 star hotel. My husband and I frequently travel around Christmas/New Year’s and our typical vacation choice is to go to an Adults Only All – Inclusive resort . First- the resort is huge. The Grand Mayan is just one of four resorts in the entire Vidanta complex.
