Mayan Ruins of Tulum

Tulum is one of the areas of Riviera Maya where natural beauty and the Mayan past are combined to offer one of the most extraordinary landscapes in the Caribbean. The ancient ruins are located on cliffs over a beautiful tropical beach, this gorgeous location chosen by the Mayans for erecting a temple dedicated to the god of the wind. The city was formerly known by the name Zamá, which means dawn in Mayan.

These ruins correspond to an ancient walled city whose splendour dates to 1000 AD. The archaeological region is located in the Tulum National Park, a vast extension of forests and mangroves of unique beauty which are home to different species of flora and fauna. It is the only ruin preserved on the beach and is probably one of the most attractive places in the whole Mexican landscape. Immerse yourself in the ancient history of the Mayans by visiting this unique location, and enjoy the view you obtain by swimming on its beach. A unique experience!
