Mexico’s Caribbean jewel, Tulum, combines a rare mix of beautiful beaches, fascinating archaeology and peaceful villages. Travellers can sunbathe on the Yucatan sands within sight of the well-preserved Mayan Ruins of Tulum, which one TripAdvisor reviewer described as ‘absolutely magnificent’.
Did you know?
• Tulum’s original name was Zama, which means ‘The City of Dawn’ due to its positioning towards the morning sunrise.
• South of Tulum, you’ll find the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, a 1.3 million acre national park that became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
• Tulum got its name from the Yucatecans and is translated to the ‘Walled City’. Visitors can easily spot the wall which was built around this ceremonial city, it is an architectural addition that is found in few Mayan sites.
