The archaeological zone at Tulum is perhaps one of the most beautiful places on the Riviera Maya, combining the mystery of the ancient civilization which inhabited this zone with the singular beauty of the Caribbean sea which bathes its shores. The city of Tulum is the only known archaeological site located by the sea, and belongs to the region known as Tankah-Tulum which comprises the zones of Tankah, Tulum and Xel-Ha. It was constructed atop a cliff facing the blue sea and has an underwater coral reef that is the world's second-largest. The site was renamed Tulum ("wall") after the Spanish conquest, referring to the stone construction which surrounds it on three sides; the sea is located to the West. Presumably, its original name was Zamá which means "sunrise" in Maya, referring to the spectacular sunrise on the turquoise sea which was the city's main source of commercial and fishing activity from the time it was founded, around 300 B.

A Recent Review of this tour

Rosalia was a wonderful guide for Tulum and Akumal beach. She was prepared with bottles of water and ponchos in case we needed them. She was prompt for pick up. We enjoyed the info she shared during our walk throughout Tulum. She also was a helpful negotiator for snorkeling equipment and a guide to snorkel with the tortoises at Akumal. What a great experience! Thank you!
