The only Mayan city that is built next to the Caribbean is Tulum , an authentic wonder in which you can contemplate the Mayan ruins in the middle of a spectacular sea paradise. A city in which I have been lucky to be and that is a joy if you like culture, history and natural beauty. A place where you will not stop being with your mouth open at every step you take of how spectacular each landscape is.
This city is on the Yucatan Peninsula , about 145 kilometers south of Cancun , one of the main destinations in this country. Less than two hours by car or bus and it is a totally recommended excursion since there are many things that you can see one day and that you will not regret. In addition, there is also a lot of hotel zone so it can become your main destination since it also has many beaches, all of them spectacular as any that you find in the Caribbean.
In Tulum you will find a main avenue that is where most of the commercial life of the area is centered and where there are craft shops , supermarkets, restaurants, bars, bus station, banks and much more. It is a city with a lot of charm and that in its archaeological zone has true wonders.
The greatest interest is in the archaeological zone, which is located on top of a 12-meter cliff and has the Caribbean Sea as its main landscape. There you can discover the main vestiges of one of the most important cities of the Mayan culture. Without a doubt, it is a perfect city to combine Mayan history and the enjoyment of the beaches and that has its best letter of introduction in the ruins of Tulum .
