Perched on the edge of a cliff, alongside the Caribbean Sea, stands the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum. Can you imagine a more picturesque place to build a city? We went to visit this stunning archaeological site last week. Here’s what we know:
We really enjoyed exploring the ruins at Tulum. The only thing I’d change if I were to visit again, was the timing. Lighting is particularly harsh during the day so it didn’t make for the nicest photos. If you want to get some nice shots of the structures, I would recommend you visit outside of normal hours. I noticed a sign on the way in that mentioned a charge of 240 pesos for a sunrise or sunset visit. It’s a significant hike in price but it would be a pretty epic spot to watch the sunrise. The site was formerly known as Zama, meaning the City of Dawn, or “place where morning is born” so it seems quite fitting to me!
