On the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, lies the ancient Mayan city of Tulum. Built in the post-Classical era (from around 1200 to 1450), Tulum was occupied until the late 1500s. Today the site is a major tourist attraction on the so-called Riviera Maya.

Wikipedia has more information available. The area has definitely been developed for tourism, so parking and trails are present, as well as numerous potential guides if desired.
