This is the main reason why this region is known, the ruins are an archaeological site with a privileged location in front of the Caribbean Sea, with important mayan buildings. To enter this place you can take a tour or go directly to the archaeological site.
- Kaan Luum Lagoon
Approximately 12 kilometers from the town of Tulum, a great attraction of the city, this site is characterized by a combination of a lagoon and a cenote of 82 meters deep. This place is a protected natural area, so we recommend using biodegradable sunscreen to avoid damaging the lagoon’s ecosystem.
Cenotes are natural pools of water that are formed in caves or caverns considered sacred by the Mayans. In the Yucatan peninsula there are thousands of these beautiful spaces and if you are a passionate snorkeler, the crystal clear and warm water of this place will be ideal for you. Some of the most recognized cenotes in the area are El gran Cenote, Cenotes Dos Ojos, Aktun Ha and others, all within walking distance of Tulum’s downtown area.
