On the Yucatán coast, the Mayan remains of Tulum hide many secrets. Discover them on this morning excursion, visiting its archaeological site.
We'll pick you up at your hotel and hit the road south following the coast of the Riviera Maya.
After a trajectory of approximately two hours along the Carribean coast, in front of Cozumel island lies Tulum. Here we'll learn the secrets of the Mayans in a guided tour of the Tulum archaeological site.
The most important monument in the enclave is known as the castle. In fact Tulum means 'wall' in Mayan, and being situated on a hill we can take in panoramic views of the Carribean. The Mayans took advantage of this privileged location to construct a lighthouse which guided the ships sailing along this part of the Mexican coast.
On our tour of the old walled city we will also visit important buildings in the area such as the Temple of Frescoes, known for the paintings which can still be seen. And on its rooftop, the Mayans built an astronomical observatory, which allowed them to make their prophecies regarding different phenomena.
Before hitting the road back to the Cancún hotel area, we will give you an hour and a half of free time to swim or look around Tulum on your own.
