Located in the state of Yucatan in Mexico, Tulum is a Mayan city that originated nearly 3000 years ago: built on a rocky point, it overlooks a magnificent turquoise sea, which is why diving and swimming enthusiasts also find themselves here. A little further out to sea, the coral reef is the second largest in the world, no less! Not to mention the idyllic beaches stretching for almost 10 km, you can see why Tulum is close to being a paradise on earth. Tulum was one of the first cities discovered by the Spanish and was also one of the last to fall into their hands. This site combines the culture and history of one of the world's greatest civilizations with the most beautiful beaches on earth. It is an archaeological site by the sea, which is extremely rare. Tulum is an ancient Mayan fortress that reached its peak in the late classical period, around 1000 AD. The emblematic monument of Tulum is surely "El Castillo": it is a temple dedicated to Venus. Its huge staircase leads to a temple supported by snake-like columns, which makes it look like the other great pyramid, Chichén Itzá. On its upper part there are three niches occupied by stucco figures, the central figure being the Bee God.
