The Mayan World is one of the most fascinating and unexplainable mysteries of the world.
There are few places in the world that offer ancient history and natural beauty in equal measure. Tulum is one of those rare places. This Caribbean jewel has been known amongst a privileged group of world travelers, and spiritual seekers for decades but has now over the last few years immensely grown in popularity amongst travelers as more and more people escape here to get away from the stress of their every day lives. Tulum was also recently voted ``Pueblo Magico``, a distinction rewarding the villages of Mexico with great cultural interest. Under the Caribbean sun, where nature is Queen, now Mayas and foreigners are united by the love for the same place.
Tulum has a very rich history, a visit to the site of its ruins overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea is essential to understand the Mayan civilization. Indeed this mystical archaeological site composed of Templos (temples) and Castillos (castles), was an indispensable trading hub for the Mayas. In the XIII and XIV centuries, the Mayas exploited the maritime routes of the entire coast with merchandise transiting the Yucatan Peninsula and Central America.
