Tulum (Maya: Too Loom - Walled City)

Tulum was a walled city, protected on one side by steep cliffs facing the sea and on the other by a wall of about 12 feet in height. Tulum served as a trading port. The ancient Maya name was ZAMA=City of Dawn or City of the Morning Star. The buildings that are visible on the site date from the Post-Classic period, around 1200 to 1500 A.D., and the city of Tulum was functioning at the time of the arrival of the Spaniards.

 

gran-cenoteGran Cenote (Sak Aktun = white cave)
Grand Cenote is part of the Sak Aktun ("white cave" in Mayan) system of underground rivers whose current flows from deep inside the Yucatan peninsula. Grand Cenote is a large beautiful garden cenote with white sand beach type areas along with easily accessible caves for snorkeling and diving. With a circumference area of 202 meters, it is very popular with families and first-time cenote swimmers. Visitors pass through well-kept gardens before descending a natural rock and wooden plank stairway to the wooden platforms and gardens below.
Large balls of roots and vines seem to grow out of the underwater ceiling, connected to the large jungle trees above. Schools of fish tend to follow, eating up the plant debris which swim fins and paddling feet tend to stir up. Little green turtles paddle around near the garden´s edge.
