Tulum-City of Dawn

Daily Photo:

We decided to make the trip more interesting so we took the city bus out of Cancun and headed south to Tulum. It was June, it was very hot and humid and really it was the “slow boat to China”. Some hours later we finally arrived and hired an interpreter to explain the history and structures built by the Mayans 500+ years ago. The area, a small city that once inhabited around 1000-1600 people is believed to have vanished because of old age diseases brought over by a spanish expedition early in the 1500’s. Tulum is mostly rolling hills overlooking the Caribbean Sea.  Cliffs suddenly drop-off into beautiful sandy beaches along the Yucatan Pennisula. Climbing down 39 feet of wooden stairs, suntanners bask in the torquoise warm waters of the Mayan Riviera, Mexico.
