The only Mayan site built to overlook the ocean, Tulum remains a coastal paradise preserving the last vestiges of a pre-Hispanic civilization. A trip to Tulum takes you to the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, to the ruins of a walled city that once represented a major port and one of the last great structures ever built by the Maya. The port thrived for several centuries, and the Maya finally abandoned it when European diseases brought by Spanish conquerors caused a high fatality rate among the native population. Today, vacations in Tulum involve more than just tours of the old ruins, as the town's modern developments include hotels, stores, restaurants, and a lively street-food scene. Find what you're looking for from your Tulum holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Mexico trip itinerary planner.
