We discovered the village of Tulum while heading down the coast with our Jeep. Our goal was to find desert beaches, which we did in Boca Paila / Punta Allen.
“Tulum – Witness to the rise and fall of an era”
Tulum is a former mayan village (Mayan post-classic period – 13th Century) in front of the ocean, and a popular attraction and day tour for people staying in Cancun. To reach Tulum was very easy, just drive south the Mexican Highway 307 from Cancun/Puerto Morelos/Playa del Carmen. Tulum is one of the most popular sights in the Riviera Maya, and people can freely see the ruins, from the city that is estimated to be built between the 13th and the 15th centuries, and also the beautiful beach.
Both the ruins and the beach here in Tulum is often packed/crowded, so arrive early. It’s also a great kickstart for your day trip to Chichen Itza, since it’s located around 150km away.
