Mounted on the edge of a cliff, this abandoned city towers above the deep turquoise of the Caribbean and a beautiful white sandy beach. Although the site dates back to earlier times, Tulum reached its peak in the Post-classic period between 1,000 and 1,600 AD. 

Originally called Zama or City of the Dawn, the sun rises from the sea above the city walls and for the ancient Maya, begins her dance across the sky.  The city within the walls was only inhabited by the nobles, high priests and esteemed citizens such as astronomers, whereas the lower classes lived in simple wood.

thatch huts beyond. The buildings in the city were originally covered with brilliant paintings and carvings – stark white, deep red or vibrant blue, but only faint remnants of these now remain. Tulum is a 1hr 40-minute drive south from Cancun. A guided visit of the site takes about 45 minutes and then some time at leisure to take photos of the picturesque views.  

Then continue to Xel Ha, a large area of protected inlets and lagoons, Xel-ha is a beautiful natural aquarium, home to many varieties of colourful tropical fish.  Here visitors can learn to snorkel and enjoy observing the fish at an arms length or simply sit in one of the beach chairs and soak up the sun!  Xel-Ha is 15 minutes north of Tulum so ideally located to combine the day with a visit to the ruins. There are several restaurants in the park giving the option of arranging a group lunch in one of them or guests can dine at their leisure.
