Tulum and Xel Ha Tour
These images are taken from our Tulum and Xel Ha tour which is a full day tour and is available every day of the week. This tour entails low physical demand and departs from Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen or Cancun.
Known as the walled Mayan city, Tulum is one of a kind and the most visited among the Maya archeological sites in the Yucatan not only because of its proximity to Cancun but because it is beautifully perched high atop a cliff with overlooking picturesque views on the magnificent coast and also because of the world's largest natural aquarium known as Xel Ha. Tulum is the only archaeological site in surrounded by the sea.
While the ruins of Tulum are less impressive and much less extensive than Chichen Itza or Uxmal in terms of structure yet it is blessed with a panoramic view of natural surroundings and the clear waters of the Caribbean.
The azure Caribbean makes a wonderful backdrop and an amazing contrast and a piece of paradise for every artist or photographer.
Considering that the area is small therefore there is quite little climbing involved but in just a couple of hours you can gain a fair appreciation of the site.
The highlights of the Tulum tour are the ancient Mayan history and the natural beauty of the Xel Ha inlet which is a natural aquarium ideal for snorkeling.
It was during the late Post-classical times, dating back to the 12th century that Tulum flourished. Some time ago, it was an important trading port. It was also one of the Mayan cities still inhabited even at the time when the Spaniards came.
