    Visit de mayan ruins of Tulum. It's only 60 kilometer from Playa del Carmen and it's really great. Take any bus to Tulum village and tell the driver you want to go to the ruins. From the main road it's about 10 min on foot. Entrance fee: 35 pesos. There's a nice beach on the right side of the ruins.

    Tulum archeological site (only mayan city built so close to the ocean)
    You have to be there to feel it, but it's a great place, with very interesting and well preserved buildings and objects of ancient mayan culture

    Tulum - Mayan Ruins

    This is a beautifully restored area right on the ocean. This was the primary port used by the Mayans in this area. Aparently the Mayans were mostly inland and used Tulum as a centre of commerce. We were told that only the wealthy traders and nobles lived within the gates. At the end of the day, all of the workers and slaves left and had homes outside the wall. Unlike Coba, this area is pretty much fully restored and unlike Coba, you don't have to walk 5km to take everything in. It does however lack the grandeur and mystery of Coba.

    Tulum has one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. The area is rich in culture and history. We had a tour of the ruins and its amazing to hear how they lived.

    A great archeological place "garnished" with a tropical beach 130 km from Cancún.

    TULUM. This is another beautiful place with ruins. It was I think 20-30 minutes from our Hotel. I also made a Travelogue for this site.

    DO NOT FORGET YOUR BATHINGSUIT! The beach there is very nice!

    Tulum Tour, Horseback riding, Snorkeling, Hook Dinner Cruise and many more.
    All is well worth it for culture, new adventure and seeing another world.

    Check out the Mayan ruins near Cancun. This is Tulum. It was really nice, but Chichen Itza is suppose to be much bigger.

    Mayan Ruins at Tulum

    The ruins are located on a cliff over looking the Caribean Sea. Although not as inpressive as Chichen Itza (sp?) it is still worth the effort.
