Take in the breathtaking views of Tulum, located against the backdrop of beaches and the Caribbean Sea. The ruins of Tulum are situated on bluffs along the Yucatán Peninsula and are of the last cities inhabited by the Mayans, and now one of the best-preserved archeological sites in Mexico. The archeological site has three major structures of interest. They include: The Temple of the Frescoes and The Temple of the Descending God, and El Castillo (the tower which dominates the area and is perched on the cliff edge). A short distance from Cancún, it is one of the most popular attractions in Mexico. The tourist destination is now divided into four main areas: the archaeological site, the pueblo (town), the zona hotelera (hotel zone), and the biosphere reserve of Sian Ka'an. Tulum was one of the earliest resorts in Mexico, offering a place of worship and solitude for the Mayan Kings and clergy. After visting this stunning location, you will fully understand why. Be amazed by the ruins, but then unwind on the pristine beaches along the azure sea; you will come to worship this place.
