Tulum

Tulum's archaeological site is easily reached from the hotel and dates from the Post-Classic period, around 1200 to 1500 A.D. The ancient city of Tulum was a thriving trading port at the time of the arrival of the Spaniards.


The most spectacular aspect of Tulum's Ruins are their unique location on a cliff overlooking the brilliant turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

The name Tulum (pronounced "too-LOOM") means wall, referring to the fact that Tulum was a walled city, protected on one side by steep cliffs facing the sea and on the other by a wall of about 12 feet in height.

Highlights:

Temple of the Frescoes

The interior of this building has original Mayan frescoes, in blue-green and outlined in black, depicting Mayan gods and religious motifs.

El Castillo - The Castle

This is the tallest building of the archaeological site. It may have functioned as a navigational aid, directing Mayan craft through the break in the reef to the beach.

The beach

The beach at the Tulum ruins definitely merits a mention, because it's one of the most beautiful beaches along the Mayan Riviera, and perfect for taking a swim after visiting the ruins.

The hotel offers a wide variety of specially tailored trips and excursions.
