Tulum Archeologic Zone


Archeological zones and museums

The only major Maya city built next to the sea: Tulum is one of the most visited archaeological sites on the Yucatan Peninsula, due in part to its close proximity to Cancun.

It is an impressive site, although, perhaps not quite as impressive as either Chichen Itza or Uxmal. Still, Tulum represents a fine example of the architecture and history of the Mayan people and is worth a visit.



Tulum Nightlife


Tulum bars and clubs are abounding on the beach area because it is where tourists and guests gather around. Although the bars and clubs in this Caribbean coast are bustling with activities, you should not expect it to be as wild and noisy as those found on the other areas of the Riviera Maya which is a band of coastlines found in the Caribbean side of the Yucatan region.

Tourists who want to enjoy their evenings sipping tropical cocktails, eating Mexican tapas and chips, and listening to the beat of salsa and funky music surely like it here in Tulum.
