The problem with seeing mainland ruins from Cozumel is that you will spend more time travelling there and back than at the ruins.To some extent that's true of everything, since you spend at least twelve hours on the boat getting to Cozumel in the first place. The question I've asked is how is the drive to the mainland ruins. I've gotten various responses, but on average the appraisal seems to be "long" but "scenic" and moderately comfortable.
bUU. The "drive" from Playa del Carmen to Tulum is about 1/2 hour.I've seen the transport mentioned a few ways. If you read between the lines in Carnival's description, the drive from Playa del Carmen to Tulum is an hour long drive each way from there to Tulum, which is 1/2 hour of driving and a 1/2 hour "restroom stop at a local Mayan cooperative center where handcrafted souvenirs are available for purchase". That makes made me prepare myself for a two hour transport each way.
