Trip Planner: Mexico / Yucatan Peninsula / Quintana Roo / Riviera Maya / Tulum / Tulum Archaeological Site
Discover a coastal paradise and a pre-Columbian culture at Tulum Archaeological Site, commanding the views over a pristine beach lapped by turquoise waters. On the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, these ruins mark the spot of a former walled city that served as an important port, one of the last built by the powerful Maya. The city thrived between the 13th and 15th centuries, managing to survive for several decades after the arrival of Spanish conquistadores. Abandoned after European diseases caused high fatalities among the Maya, the city's remains now serve as a major tourist attraction. Avoid the big tour groups and explore the site in relative peace by visiting early in the morning. Take the guesswork out of planning a Tulum vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
