From the moment you walk into the compound there is a spiritual sense that surrounds you. I have traveled to many Mayan ruins but this one really was so beautiful- just sitting on the cliff overlooking the Caribbean. Not crowded in the early part of the day but becomes congested around lunch time.

This is a great place to avoid Cancun timeshares. Nice places to stay on the peninsula south of Tulum

The ruins at Tulum are breathtaking, the history, the views and swimming at the beach looking back at the ruins. Well worth having a guide to learn about it.

Loveliest view where it opens up to the sea from the ruins. Off the beaten path - took a bus to the ruins.

And by that, I don't mean the party center at Punta Cancun--I mean the old Cancun downtown where there are dozens of delicious restaurants, local shops that sell beautiful souvenirs, outside seating and a good feeling of being out of the hotel zone with all of the tourists (like us!) to interact and support the local people of Cancun who...
