Tulum is the most visited of all Mayan ruins and is easily accessed from the Mexican Riviera Mayan town of Tulum. The site is certainly scenic, being right on the Caribbean where azure blue water makes for a wonderful contrast to the ancient city. Below are pictures from our trip for you to enjoy. After the pictures, you’ll find some useful links to a detailed article about the site, an article with advice on how to see it and what to expect, and links to articles about my favorite centotes and Mesoamerican ruins.
