THE THINGS YOU CAN’T MISS
Tulum has a cliff that looks towards the Caribbean and it is very well known since it combines an ancient archaeological area with beautiful beaches. It is also part of the magical towns in Mexico thanks to its beautiful nature and history.
Tulum has the only archaeological area by the beach in Mexico, making this, a beautiful place for pictures. This Mayan city was built between the XIII and XVI centuries and it was a reference point for boats since it had “El Castillo” (The Castle), one of the tallest buildings which was used as a lighthouse to help the sailors get through the coral reefs.
“El Castillo” and the “Templo de los frescos” (Temple of the Fresh) Are two visits you must make during your trip. There is a lot of history in these gray and blue walls.
Only 25 miles towards the northeast of Tulum you’ll be able to find Coba. A city that once was the biggest and most powerful in the Mayan culture. The beautiful 140ft pyramid, Nohoch Mul, was the astronomical observatory where they wrote down discoveries.
