Meet the Mayans

If you’re looking for a change of pace during your stay, head south down the beach highway to the ruins of the Mayan city of Tulum. A stone edifice built on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean, Tulum is one of the region’s best-preserved Mayan ruins. One of our favorite tours is Mayaland’s exclusive “Tulum Mayan Temples & Tankah Eco-Adventure Park Excursion,” featuring a visit to Tulum followed by the the adrenaline rush of Tankah, where you’ll take a 4x4 jeep tour, zip line, kayak, swim in a cenote and simply revel in the eco-adventures of this beautiful place.
