Tulum is a well maintained Maya city from over 500 years ago, incredible as this city is directly located at the beach which is tropical. Must have been the paradise for them. There are several buildings that can be visited, also with paintings inside, very...More

Nice place for a stroll and fun area to walk. There is a small fee to enter, but this is worth it. You can enter the beach but it is not cleaned as regularly as some hotels and this makes it a bit smelly.

It was extremely informative and so close to visit. Absolutely breathtaking to see so much history right in front of you.
