The Mayan Influence of Tulum
When I had told my friends and colleagues that I was going to be taking a short trip to Tulum for a yoga retreat, I continued to hear the same variety of responses declaring how spiritual Tulum is and that it is the perfect place for Yoga.
On one of my mornings off, I rode my rickety bicycle about 30 minutes to witness the Mayan Ruins before they were packed with tourists. As my short journey was coming to an end, I came across the plaque featured in the photo above and couldn't help but think how right the Mayans were.
If you’re in Tulum you’ll undoubtedly hear about the Mayan ruins and be urged to visit. Let me add my voice to the peanut gallery. I visited a few different ruins in the area, and the Tulum Ruins were by far the most beautiful. You can’t beat the incredible location, as the ruins float above the Caribbean Sea. And for a bonus, it’s fun to spot the plentiful chubby iguanas sunning themselves on the ruins’ rocks, which are very convenient for reptilian camouflage.
