The only Mayan site built to overlook the ocean, Tulum remains a coastal paradise preserving the last vestiges of a pre-Hispanic civilization.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Ek Balam and Ek Balam. Take a break from the city and head to Gran Cenote and Chikin Ha. Get out of town with these interesting Tulum side-trips: Puerto Aventuras (Ecopark Kantun Chi & Scuba & Snorkeling), Akumal Monkey Sanctuary & Rescued Animals (in Akumal) and Playa del Carmen (Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church & Cenote Chaak Tun). There's lots more to do: see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Mayan Beach, have unforgettable encounters with a shark diving experience, and explore the gorgeous colors at National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos.
