Tulum: A Mexican escape to the beach
Despite its proximity to Cancun and its fellow party neighbor Playa del Carmen, Tulum attracts a different spring break crowd to its turquoise waters and white sandy beaches, with a mix of bohemians, well-pocketed New Age types and sun-seekers.
The Castle of the Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico is lit by late afternoon sun. Tulum may be best-known for its ancient Mayan ruins, which attract a steady stream of day-trippers, cruise passengers and tour buses. The complex of crumbling structures here is smaller and less impressive than some other Mayan sites like Chichen Itza, but its location atop seaside cliffs is one of the most scenic ruin sites on the Yucatan.
