Tip from Content Creator

Mayan ruins in Tulum
Since you'll be staying close to the Mayan ruins, make sure to visit them during your stay. You’ve probably seen the image a million times on Instagram, the one with the Mayan temple overlooking the Caribbean Sea. I finally got to visit it and loved it! I did a guided tour so I could learn about Tulum and the Mayan culture. It was very interesting.
