Bordered by Mexico’s Caribbean Sea, Tulum is a scenic town famous for its pristine beaches and beautiful ruins. It was the last great city built and occupied by the Mayan settlement. With the city’s rich Mayan heritage, the first place you might want to visit is the archaeological site of Tulum Ruins, including the 7.5-meter-tall (24.61-feet-tall) El Castillo. The ruins are enchantingly spread over the rugged bluff overlooking the azure Caribbean waters. Aside from cultural remnants, Tulum is also blessed with jewel-toned cenotes, where travelers can enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling. Some famous natural sinkholes you can visit in the city are Gran Cenote, Cenote Calavera, and Casa Cenote. If this fascinates you, be sure to plan your trip to Tulum right away.
