Archaeological area of Tulum
The Tulum Archaeological Zone is located in the Tulum National Park. It is made up of the ruins of the ancient Mayan civilization and includes several structures. The uniqueness of this archaeological area is that it is located on a cliff overlooking the sea, which is truly inspiring!
It is one of the most famous cenotes in Mexico, it is a cave with fresh water inside. The Gran Cenote has such clear, transparent and crystal clear water, even though you can observe the underwater life without diving, it is one of the best snorkeling spots!
Laguna de Kaan Luum
This lagoon is rarely advertised and tourists rarely explore it, but it hides a beauty so great that it can be compared to a small hidden paradise. Here you will be completely immersed in nature, surrounded only by water and dense vegetation.
