Whether you arrive in Cozumel by plane or ship, taking a tour of the ruins is a must. Learning about the history, lifestyle and culture of the Mayan civilization is an experience you will never forget.
Tulum was occupied as far back as 600 A.D.; however, it was most densely populated around 1200 A.D. The oldest Mayan ruin on the island dates back to 300 A.D.
The Castle is the pyramid type structure which dominates the city from the top of a 40-foot cliff. The nearby Temple of the Descending God provides equally excellent insight into the architecture of the Mayan people. Colorful murals and paintings that once decorated the ancient walls are now faded but still tell the story and history of an incredible civilization. The Mayans are a group of people who gained many achievements in the arts and sciences, and then mysteriously disappeared.Their story is amazing.
When touring the ruins, be sure to wear good walking shoes, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Depending on the time of year you travel, the temperatures can get extremely warm.
