The Mayan ruins of Tulum is a shore excursion well worth taking when docked in Cozumel. There are about 60 well preserved buildings on the site of Tulum.The most outstanding building of Tulum is the Castle, El Castillo, perched on Tulum's highest cliff. This temple-topped pyramid also served as a watchtower and a lighthouse.
Bicycle throughout the ancient Mayan city of Coba( means 'waters stirred by the wind') in Mexico, on the original sacbes(white roads) and climb the highest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan, Nohoch Mul(137ft/120 steps).
Our certified guides will take you to the massive Kukulkan pyramid, "El Castillo" (the castle), which is located roughly at the center of the site. Its construction was planned so that during each Vernal Equinox the setting sun would cast a shadow of a serpent (the Mayan God Kukulkan) slithering down the steps of the pyramid.
