Even for us locals there’s something special about the color of the Caribbean Sea near the Tulum ruins. Somehow it’s just a little more blue than anywhere else. It’s no wonder that the Mayans decided to establish a community in that lovely spot.

Tulum never had more than about 600 residents, which is nothing compared to places like Chichen Itza or Coba, which were both home to around 50,000 people. If you are interested in majestic Mayan ruins the small ones at Tulum will likely disappoint, but if you want to visit one of the more lovely spots on the planet Tulum will qualify!
