Walled city, of pre-Columbian Mayan origin, Tulum fascinates with its superb temples, its swaying palm trees, its turquoise blue sea, the powdery sand of its long beaches, its scuba diving sites and its unique cenotes ( s deep sinkhole in limestone with clear water). A paradise for digital nomads, a getaway for families and couples. With its large range of restaurants, designer boutiques and its yoga-loving public, the local vibe is relaxed and hip. The best way to experience the vibes of Tulum is simply to take an evening stroll by the water and taste local cocktails, fresh coconut ice cream, and stroll around the stalls of handmade jewelry and hats… All of it has the taste of holidays!
Tulum dates back to 564 but the city's heyday was from the eleventh to the fifteenth century: this city had a notable religious significance as well as being a trading center. The Spanish explorer Juan Díaz may have been the first Westerner to visit the city (in 1518), but archaeological interest in this city did not arise until the 19th century.
The city is a fascinating pre-Columbian Mayan walled city with several superb temples, three major structures of interest at the Tulum archaeological site: El Castillo, the Temple of the Frescoes, and the Temple of the Descending God.
