Tulum is one of the most important archaeological sites in the Riviera Maya. In ancient times it was called Zama which means dawn, the current name, Tulum, means 'enclosure or wall'. For the ancient Maya people, this city played a predominant role in marine trade in the region, as well as being an astronomical observatory and a defensive system. Currently it is embraced by all visitors; this Mayan city was built at the front of the sea, on a cliff from where the turquoise colors of the Caribbean Sea can be seen in all its splendor.
You can visit Tulum from Cancun or any other destinations of the Riviera Maya or you can stay in this lovely place. The town of Tulum, adjacent to the archaeological site, has grown considerably in recent years, so today it offers all the services, as well as hotels of all categories, including green hotels and boutique hotels.
