Mexican Riviera: Tulum

The Mayan Ruins at Tulum

The following photos are from the fascinating Mayan archaeological site in Tulum, Mexico. The Mayan people were simply brilliant at creating calendars based on the movement of the sun, moon and stars. What’s amazing is that they did it 2500 years ago using rocks. They also picked a beautiful spot overlooking the turquoise sea to build their village. If you ever go to Tulum, or any of the Mayan sites, get a guideĀ to show you around.

One of many Temples on the site. (Check out how the clouds mimic the architecture!)
