The ancient walled city of Tulum, which was first settled almost 1,500 years ago and was still inhabited when the Spaniards arrived, is now a protected national park. It served as one of the most dynamic ports of the Mayan world where countless products were traded.

DISCOVER THE MAYAN ARCHITECTURE
Climb up to the Castle and enjoy a panoramic view that allows you to see all the boats approaching the coast. Imagine the Mayan navigators guiding their boats to the open channel among the coral reefs.

VISIT THE TEMPLE OF LOS FRESCOS
Hold your breath as you admire the internal walls decorated with paintings replete with gray and blue tones. The temple continued to receive offerings from the neighboring towns who sought to please the sea gods up until the beginning of the 20th century.

GIVE YOURSELF TIME TO EAT
There are many small restaurants in the surrounding area where you can taste traditional seafood dishes that are flavored with annatto paste, wrapped in banana leaves and then undergo an underground baking process.
