Tulum’s Mayan Ruins have become quite an iconic attraction in Mexico’s enchanting Riviera Maya. The historic site backs right up to the beautiful Caribbean waters. I visited this wondrous site approximately fifteen years ago when it was just a local sightseeing stop in a small small town known for its authentic charm.
Since then, Tulum has become a pin pointed spot as a serious vacation destination. It is starting to rival its neighboring cities of Playa del Carmen and Puerto Aventuras.

The Tulum Ruins overlook some of the most beautiful white sand beaches that North America has to offer. One special addition that the park has included is the new stairs that lead visitors down to the turquoise water.
You can walk along the powdery white sand and get your feet wet while exploring the giant rocks that lay between the water and sheer cliffs.
The Tulum Ruins offer a look at what civilization was like back in 500 AD. The site offers many speculations why this particular area was chosen for a community that had anywhere from 1,000 to 1,600 inhabitants at any given time. The Mayan people – sometimes referred to as Yucatecan in this region, were a very advanced society and especially in the study of the sun, moon and stars.
The video attached below walks you through many parts of the ruins. It provides a brief introduction to what you can expect when visiting such a landmark. I am sure will enjoy the tour. If you decide to make Tulum your vacation destination, they not only have great beaches that extend for miles, but a variety of hotels, restaurants and plenty of shopping.
