  1. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today.

  2. There are more impressive, sophisticated Mayan ruins elsewhere. What makes Tulum special is its location. The ruins overlooking the striking blues of the sea is a unique and beautiful scene.

    • I agree completely, Suzanne. Lots more intricate designs and larger structures, but Tulum is unique because of its site.

  3. I have always enjoyed exploring the Mayan ruins – they are so fascinating! I have yet to see the ones at Tulum – but with a view like that, clearly I made a mistake missing them on my last trip to Mexico! Chitzen Itza was amazing, but the view in that shot looks like a great place to spend some time contemplating the Mayans!

    • Hi Anita: The Tulum ruins are different from any others I’ve seen. This site was the port for the Mayas, apparently the only one of its kind. And bring your swimsuit, because after touring, they have a fantastic little public beach at the foot of the cliff, with dressing rooms, etc. The softest, whitest sand I’ve ever seen is in Tulum!
