Located less than a mile away and situated on a cliff above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, Tulum is one of the most beautiful archeological sites in the Mayan world. The city was built somewhere between 1000 and 1500 AD. At that time it was the center of commerce and transport of produce between the Caribbean and central Mexico. Today the walled city still has many well-preserved structures to explore and a small but lovely beach where you can take a dip.


Located about 20 minutes away, the archeological site of Coba has not been excavated or reconstructed. Here you’ll find structures still covered with jungle growth and may even be accompanied by birds and monkeys as you explore. Coba is situated on four lakes which are believed to have given the city its name which means “waters stirred by the wind.”


Chichen Itza was the center of the Mayan world between 800 and 1200 AD and is one of the most highly renown Mayan archeological sites.
