About 127 kilometers south of Cancún, Tulum is the first place in Mexico to be touched by the sun’s rays every morning. The archaeological zone of Tulum is located overlooking the shimmering blue waters of the Mexican Caribbean….
The best of Mexico’s Caribbean coast belongs to the Riviera Maya which has no shortage of notable attractions: the world’s longest underground river, the world’s second-longest coral reef, beautiful beaches, ancient Maya ruins, gourmet restaurants, lounge bars, and beachside discotheques.
Starting from the southern edge of Cancún, the 160 km long Caribbean coastline (known as ‘The Riviera Maya’) dotted by numerous small towns and villages covers Playa del Carmen, a lovely beach town; the nature parks of Xcaret and Xel-ha, both of which were ancient Maya ports now converted into modern-day leisure paradises; Tulum, a fascinating archaeological zone by the sea which was the only walled city built by the Maya, and finally ending at the Sian Ka’an Biosphere. This tourist paradise also includes the beautiful islands of Isla Mujeres and Cozumel which offer unforgettable snorkelling and scuba diving along the world’s second-longest coral reef.
