Tulum is the site of a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city facing east towards the Caribbean Sea. The ruins are situated on 12-meter tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayans; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico.
Today Tulum ruins are the third most-visited archaeological site in Mexico, after Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza.

The ruins nicely framed with the two trees and the lovely green patch and steps in the foreground. I also liked your note which places the photograph in context.

Tulum is an amazing place -- a Mayan palace by the sea! Your foto captures the grandeur of the site very nicely!
