Mayan ruins and images from the past bring to life a people whose culture and knowledge have enriched Mexico and the world in general. Playa del Carmen is the perfect place to explore this territory and to delve into Mayan archeology.
Tulum is by far the best archeological and tourist site on the Riviera Maya to illuminate the glories of this era.
It is 43 miles south of Playa del Carmen, with an area of 1,590 acres, and is renowned for its cliff top location and its views of the Caribbean. Its main attractions are El Castillo, the Temple of the Descending God, the Temple of the Frescoes, and the Temple of Wind.
Coba, which is located 26 miles from Tulum, is another site with monumental buildings and an extensive network of 45 paths. It was once home to more than 50,000 inhabitants, and it dominated an expanse of territory, which included the entire north of the current state of Quintana Roo and parts of eastern Yucatan.
