Where are the ruins of Tulum?
Located 100 miles (62 km) south of Playa del Carmen (about 30 minutes) and 80 miles (128 km) from Cancun (about 1 hour 10 minutes).
The magical ruins of Tulum are walled to the east and face the Caribbean Sea to the west.
Thanks to its strategic location, Tulum proved to be one of the most powerful city-states during the 13th and 14th centuries, particularly after the fall of a rival city, Mayapán.
In their day, the Mayan ruins surely presented an imposing figure to seafaring visitors to the walled city.
In fact, when the Spanish first arrived there in 1518, they considered Tulum to be as big as Seville.
However, shortly after the Spanish began their occupation of Mexico, the ancient Mayans who once called this majestic site home abandoned it.
Who built the ruins of Tulum?
You are probably thinking of the Mayans, right?
That would be the easy answer.
Of course, that’s like saying the French built the Statue of Liberty.
According to the archaeological finds in the Ruins of Tulum, the site began to be inhabited as early as 564 AD.
Although it never exceeded approximately 1,600 inhabitants, the place remained occupied until shortly before the end of the 16th century.
It was then that the disease brought by the Spanish wiped out most of the population.
Over a period of 7 centuries, rulers came and went. The city we know as Tulum was transformed by each new generation of inhabitants and their respective styles and influences.
As a result, as in other Mayan ruins in the Yucatan Peninsula, many of the buildings fuse different architectural styles depending on the time they were built or expanded.
Both for its ruins and for its natural wealth, where its beautiful beaches bathed by crystal clear turquoise waters stand out, offering a beautiful spectacle for any visitor, and where couples fall in love with this magical place away from the noise and bustle of the cities.
Without a doubt, a paradise that you cannot miss at least once in your life.
