Magical Tulúm
Perched on a bluff above the Caribbean Sea, the enigmatic walled city of Tulúm was founded around 900 BC as the last major city of the Maya Empire – and the only known archaeological site located by the sea. Climb up to the main tower, El Castillo (the castle), sometimes referred to as the lighthouse, the tallest building here and the most noteworthy. Dedicated to Venus (Kukulkán), it stands on a bluff with commanding views of the ocean in both directions and once served as a sentinel for the ancient Maya making the pilgrimage from Guatemala and Honduras to the sacred Island of Cozumel where they paid homage to the fertility goddess Ixchel.
