Tulum by the Sea


This is what makes the Tulum ruins unique (although as recent as this summer I have visited another Mayan ruins that I believe also situated seaside, I'll post later) - its seaside location. While its location may have been very important for trade in its heyday, today it's what attracts the many visitors that flock to this ruin.

This image doesn't translate well, but when we saw this scene, all four of us let us a big WOW. It's the quintessential vacation image in our mind, and at that moment we were there in flesh.

Blue skies and bluer water = what a lovely sight. An experience I would always remember.
