The only major Maya archaeological site to overlook the Caribbean Sea is only 128km (80 mi) south of Cancun. Not one of the larger Maya sites, but the seaside location gives it a beautiful setting. Tulum contains over 60 different structures and is believed to be one of the most important ceremonial sites for the Maya people.
This archaeological zone that dates back more than 7 centuries shows the remains of a huge walled city with roads, homes and businesses by the sea. The major highlight of Tulum is El Castillo, which is a large pyramid that sits on a forty-foot cliff. El Castillo is thought to be a part of a series of lighthouses. The architecture is similar to Chichen Itza but on a much smaller scale; unlike Chichen Itza, you are not allowed to go inside or climb on the pyramids.
A very pretty island and the most inhabited in all of Mexico. It is also an important Caribbean port of call. Chankanaab National Park is located here. It is well known for its watersport activities such as diving, snorkeling, sailing, boating and fishing.
