Mexico – Hello to The Riviera Maya and The Tulum Ruins

By -

Gorgeous turquoise sea, blue sky and a warm temperature greeted us today for the first of a few days on Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Even in the Iberostar Resort of Playa Paraiso where we are staying you cannot escape wonderful surroundings. The reception and foyers, surrounded by water, great architecture and pool upon pool. Cannot wait to explore more.

It’s fantastic also to meet again and explore with a great Twitter Friend JD @earthXplorer

The first trip…. To the Mayan ruins of Tulum. Not far by coach down the coast is one of those places that captures the imagination when seen in person.

The ruins are part of an old walled city built by the Mayans upon the cliffs facing east out to the caribbean sea. The guides have wealth of knowledge. From the full history of the city, the meanings of insignia all the way through to the Mayan gods, temples and why all became a ruin. Lots to learn, lots to see and lots to explore.

  1. OMG. This remind me of my travel to Mexico. How come I haven't heard anything about this place. Now I'm jealous. I know the ruins, because it is usually shared to me by a Mexican friend. But darn, the beach so fine and inviting. Is the hotel just near the beach? Coz it is just a perfect place to visit. A resort which is man made, the ruins which is great for historical adventure trip, and a nearby beach for beach buffs like me. Perfect.
