The ruins of  Tulum is located on the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico.  This city was one of the last ones built and inhabited by the Mayans from AD 1200 until it was completely abandoned by the end of the 16th century. Our tour guide informed us that this is the only Mayan city which lies close to the shore. Being in the presence of these ancient architectural wonders was in itself quite an experience already…so imagine that jaw dropping moment when you step out of a corner and see sprawled before you the sapphire blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.

    • Thank you Miriam! You have an interesting page as well. Nice info about your part of the world, which I have not been to yet. Looking forward to visiting Australia someday. Thanks again for dropping by.


    • I don’t remember problems with mosquito while I was there. Too bad you had a bad experience during your visit. You are right about wishing to have more time to spend. We were there for just a few hours.
