mayan ruins in tulum

Picture 108

As promised, here are the rest of the photos of the Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico. Perched high on a cliff along the Caribbean coast, it used to be a walled city to defend the Mayan settlements against invasion and was also as used as their main trading port. Nowadays, the ruins are still well-preserved and remain a popular tourist destination in the Mexican Riviera.

It was raining for about 15 minutes when we got there but pretty soon it gave way to the brightest sunshine. My only regret was not bringing any swimwear because the beach below the ruins was absolutely beautiful!

Note to self: when you're in Mexico, bring swimwear with you wherever you go. :)

P.S. You can read more about Tulum here.
