TULUM travel guide: R
Writer Kristina Kulyabina @kristinakuly
esting on 39-foot-high cliffs, the seaside site of Tulum, Mexico protrudes from the Yucatan Peninsula with sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. This ancient Mayan city and current resort town offers so much more than just a whitesand beach to get your tan on.
Located in the state of Quintana Roo, Tulum balances that relaxing, â€˜treat yourself â€™ vacation with adventurous and culturally engaging opportunities. Discover the City of Dawn, named after its position facing the sun, through the 11th century walls encapsulating stucco figures and temples. After dropping your jaw at the impressive pre-Columbian ruins, head over to the glistening beaches to chow down on some of the best tacos in town. With it's bohemian-chic vibe, while surrounded by a lush jungle, Tulum will get you rooted back to nature and into a tranquil state of mind.
