Tulum was a site of huge importance between 1000 and 1600 AD, and something of a haven for the elite of the Mayan world. But Tulum is far more than some ancient country club with beautiful grounds and sweeping views of the sea. There is a twenty-foot wall surrounding the site signifying the inhabitant's – very real – fear of invasion. Tulum has a number of interesting structures from the Mayan world, and a number of murals on site seem to indicate that this was – among other functions – a place of worship to the Diving God. Appropriate given this coastline has some of the finest dive sites in the world.
We recommend taking a swimsuit and towel so you can go for a dip in the sea and relax on the beautiful beach after doing the whole culture thing.
