    Tulum Mexico Overview

    Tulum-Mexico-Beach-Ruins.jpg

    About 80 miles south of Cancun is the small town of Tulum, best known for its ruins, which overlook turquoise coloured waters and soft sandy beaches on the Caribbean coast.

    Tulum was built during the dying days of the Mayan empire, and was actually a fort. It's quite tame in comparison to the archaeological site of Chichen Itza, but it does have one overwhelming attraction: its location next to the sea.

    There are a number of small hotels, villas and beach cabanas that allow travelers to come and stay in Tulum and explore the area. Or you can come here for a day, enjoy the ruins and then walk down to the great beaches and stunning water for sunbathing, paddling, swimming or snorkelling.

    Just 15 minutes' away from Tulum is the Sian Ka'an Biosphere, a UNESCO listed and federally protected area which is more than 2000 square miles in size. You can find out more about this in the Key Attractions section, below.

    Tulum is easily accessible by road from Cancun or Playa del Carmen and if you like archaeology, should be included as a fun trip instead of an awe-inspiring archaeological find, with the opportunity to see some stunning scenery and have a refreshing swim.

    Tulm is about a 45 minute ride (by bus, taxi, or rental car) south of Playa del Carmen. The only Mayan city built directly on the sea, Tulum is thought to date from 400-900A.D. After exploring the ruins and enjoying the spectacular view from atop EL CASTILLO.  You can take a refreshing dip in the Caribbean from the pristine beach in front of the site.  Tulum, in Quintana Roo near the town of El Crucero, is the place to go for ruins on the beach.  It is the most visited Maya ruin and is the biggest attraction on the coast.  It was the only Maya city built on the coast, possibly having housed 2000 people and once functioned as a trade center...

    This port city was never conquered by the Spaniards and was one of the last Maya outposts left standing during their revolt against Mexican rule in the War of the Castes during the 1840's.  There is no question why Tulum holds great significance to the Mayans. An impressive sight at Tulum is an imposing castle standing on the edge of a 12 meter cliff at the top of the ruins. Visitors may wish to bring a swim suit to cool off in a cove at the bottom of the site but there are no facilities. The area prime trekking ground for those who want to experience jungle wildlife living amidst pristine rain forest and unrestored Mayan ruins.
