When it comes to Maya ruins, everyone knows Chichen Itza. But we personally like Tulum better. Situated on 12-meter tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea, Tulum feels more lively and connects the past to the present — people in Maya era were probably looking at the same ocean as we are now. An even simpler reason: what would look bad with a Caribbean backdrop?
Surrounded by the tropical plants and exposed rocks, we felt like primitives in the Juressi Park. This funny sense adds to the mythical vibe and connection to our unknown ancestors.
