Around 10am is when the tour buses arrive, if you'd like photos without hundreds of people in the background get there at opening time, it would also beat the intense heat and humidity, I went in September and it was HOT and HUMID.
Many people have already mentioned the scammers, this is what we found:
We drove to the ruins: suggest you don't park at the first car park you come to, the first one we saw was priced at 200 pesos, the second car park (they were...More
We visited mid Sept 2017 and it was HOT. So hot you would fry if you did not have an umbrella as there is very little shade when walking around the ruins. Luckily the tour we went on provided them to us. BRING WATER. I...More

As of 28 August 2019 the entry fee for Tulum was 75 Pesos (approximately $3.75 USA per person). Be sure to purchase your entrance ticket at the entry booth so that you do not get scammed. If you drive, do not purchase tickets from the vendors in the parking lot. The cost is very inflated (200 Pesos or more - $10.00 USA) or the tickets are not valid for entry into the site. Use caution. Hope this was helpful and enjoy for trip to the site.

In Tulum, you will find stairs and unlevel grounds during all the route and is a long walk. There some small stores and cafes outside the archeological site. For more visual reference, you can search for videos on YouTube about the place and excursions to Tulum, and Google Maps, to see the surrounding area.
