    I haven't been in years, but whenever my family would make a trip out to Cancun, the Tulum trip would be amongst my favorites. The ruins might not be the best preserved in the area, but they are still in great shape and are very fascinating and fun to explore. Of course, what I love about Tulum is that it's right by a beach, so you can cool down from your hot stroll among the ruins in the water. It makes for a perfect combination.

    Can't really blame the Mayans for building this fortress where they did; the scenery is so sublime! The azure water, leafy palm trees, and craggy precipices make these ruins seem more like scene out of Pirates of the Caribbean than an archeological site. One downside is that the beauty of this place attracts hoards of visitors, so plan on going early.

    É a jóia do caribe mexicano... uma viagem no tempo sensacional! As ruínas da cidade portuária são belíssimas, o banho de mar é incrivelmente gostoso e relaxante, além do visual estonteante. Chegar logo às 08h foi a melhor opção pra mim, pois pude tirar fotos sem dividir as paisagens com dezenas de turistas, além de pegar a praia deserta. Depois das 10h pipoca vários grupos de turistas... fui muito feliz ao repetir esse passeio por conta própria. Saí da vila em Playa del Carmen de van até a zona arqueológica de Tulum em pouco mais de 60min... caminhei da rodovia até a entrada do sítio em poucos mais de 10 minutos com direito a pausa para um cafecito no Bar da Marcia, na beira da estrada. Vale a pena demais!

    This is a small Mayan ruin. It is the only Mayan ruin that is ocean view.
