Tulum Ruins

Originally a seaport that is a site to a trade of turquoise and jade, the walled Mayan City has become a vestige of its former self, essentially as ruins. Despite being abandoned by a culture that once made it a lively place of settlement, Tulum is still a remarkable place to visit. Thanks primarily to its beautiful beaches and the enduring Castillo which gives a scenic view of the Caribbean.

Xcaret Park

Not everything fantastic about Cancun is made by Mother Nature herself. Making for an exception, a man-made resort such as the Xcaret Park adds aesthetics to the growing commercial area of Cancun. Its quaint layout and diverse fun offerings take advantage of Playa del Carmen’s rather distinct makeup.
