If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m currently traveling around Mexico. Last week I headed down South to Cancun, a major world-renowned tourist destination in my country.
While I was there, I visited the Mayan city of Tulum, the uttermost picturesque archaeological site in the Riviera Maya and the only one to have been built overlooking the ocean.
Formerly known by the name Zama, meaning City of Dawn, (because it faces the sunrise) this ancient Mayan fortress city rose to power toward the end of the Classic period. The most iconic of its structures, the Castillo, is perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the clear turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean. – Talk about a million-dollar view?
The majority of travelers choose to visit the ruins at Tulum on day trips and organized tours! And so forth that’s what I did. I walked around the ruins, imagining how life would have been living there, and I enjoyed the pristine white beach with its jade-green water, the summery breeze and soaked up the sun… – Oh, the beautiful life!
If you’re visiting Tulum, here are some of my recommendations:
1. Make certain you wear comfortable shoes since you’ll be on your feet quite some time.
2. If you’re thinking about going into the beach, pack your swimsuit and a towel. – Do not go in with your clothes that have never been on style!
3. Put on sunscreen, you will need protection from the radiant and bright sun.
4. Furthermore, bring an umbrella or wear a big hat. – This is not the place to get a tan.
5. Carry some water with you. Even thought there are convenient stores on site, they’re more expensive than back in Cancun, plus nearly all hotels offer free bottle water.
6. Lastly, be respectful of this site and follow the rules. – I know it sounds tempting to go into the ruins and take a selfie, trust me! I live for the likes; however, this is part of Mexico’s history so don’t FUCK IT UP!
Not just a pretty face
