Yet another magical journey into Mayan Land, as we visit the mystical ruins of Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Some of these captivating structures date back to 100 BC, and they are the only Ocean-Front Mayan ruins in the Yucatan Penisnula.
We then proceed on our air-conditioned luxury vehicles to a beautiful Cenote. A cenote is a freshwater sinkhole in the jungle, where you can snorkel and swim in the waters this sacred mayan place, and discover the beauty of the underwater caverns and tunnels.
Tulum (Spanish pronunciation: [tu’lum], Yucatec: Tulu’um) is the site of a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city serving as a major port for Cobá. The ruins are situated on 12-meter (39 ft) tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Seain the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Tulum was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have resulted in very high fatalities, disrupting the society and eventually causing the city to be abandoned. Tulum is one of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites.
