Tulum Archaeological Zone
The Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico are some of the most fascinating and well-preserved ancient ruins in the world. Situated on the Eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, the Tulum ruins offer a unique glimpse into the sophisticated culture of the ancient Mayans.
The Mayan civilization was one of the most advanced ancient civilizations in the Americas, with a rich culture, advanced writing system, and architectural prowess. The Tulum ruins, built in the late post-classic period (AD 1200-1450), are believed to have been a trading hub and coastal fortification for the Mayans. The site was strategically located on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, making it an ideal location for trade and defense.
