The complex of crumbling structures here is smaller and less impressive than some other Mayan sites like Chichen Itza (well, there is also overcrowded!), but its location atop seaside cliffs is one of the most scenic ruin sites on the Yucatan. The complex is surrounded by a wall (Tulum means wall) and was inhabited for centuries before Spanish colonialists arrived in the early 1500s.
TULUM is another Mayan place - there are more and less ruins, but in the amazing surrounding! The Even the Carribean Sea make this overcrowded place of the dramatically situated Maya ruin to a breathtaking place to rest and see the culture so near in one. It is a spectacular coastline – with its confectioner sugar sands, jade-green water, balmy breezes and bright sun – make it one of the top beaches in Mexico (I am sure!). Before I came here I visited almost empty BEAUTIFUL Isla Holbox (north of Cancún). Oh. I was in paradise!! You must take a boat and after 30 mins you get in Bohemian vibe and natural beauty! It still doesn´t draw an eclectic crowd...
One of the sportlers asks for money... it is alright, but you just spent so much money at every coner!
The Riviera Maya on a shoestring with hotels and on the other side the sea.Tulum is luxury, but the luxury here is nature and the beach. Even a room costs $150. I had a great luck I slept in a hotel with my Czech friends, there had one place free and then in a house of a friend of my friend, who has there a big house. All was a fortune I am so thankful for. I could feel this unique luxury very near...
There is one big drawback. And what about drinking & eating COCO??
THE ABSOLUTE BEAUTY OF THE CARIBBEAN SEA!!
I was just like in heaven when I saw this beach, this natural hotels - the mostly "hotels" are just for max. 8 people, there are made from natural materials, no beton or what we can see in the most see resorts over the world, or just in Cancun, the rabbits-houses for thousands tourists... here you are the unique traveler in an unique hotel. The beach is so soft and the ocean so warm and so blue... I have never seen such a natural ocean-beach-beauty! I was so happy being here, thankful to have this unique chance!!
forgo the luxury digs!
I lent a bike... this was just a great chance to discover fast the surroundings!!
I love bike so I loved the discovery!!
And enjoyed the fruits...served there always fresh!--- just here is a small fake... you know it, don´t you?
