Zona Arqueológica de Tulum
Located 130 kilometers from Cancún is one of the most prominent archaeological sites of the Yucatán peninsula called the Zona Arqueológica de Tulum. Tulum is situated on the edge of a cliff and offers a beautiful view of the Caribbean. It has its own beach and an impressive archaeological area available for touring. The major focus of this site is the construction of this ancient city which dates back to between 1200 and 1400 CE, and displays similar building styles to Chichen Itzá and Uxmal. Ask at your hotel reception about transport times and prices.
We visited the Mayan ruins in Tulum in October, 2003. Being the only Mayan civilization built by the sea, this was a beautiful site to visit. Our tour guide spoke English very well and so we learned a lot about the Mayan civilization that morning. Walking in to the Mayan ruins, you will pass a little shopping center where you can find some reasonable prices on merchandise after dickering on price for a bit. You might even want to take your bathing suits to the Tulum ruins as there is a beautiful spot to swim!
