Photographer's Note

Tulum is a Mayan city and port dating from around 600AD, and as many other cases related to mezzo-american civilizations, was abandoned (around 1400AD) without known reasons.

The archeological site may not have the bigger constructions that one finds in other Mayan centers (like Palenque, Chichen Itza or Tikal), but is very well maintained and offers the attraction of being by the Caribean sea.

In fact, Tulum is located in what tourism operators now call the “Mayan Riviera”. Anyway, I must admit that the white coral sand beaches and turqoise waters of the Caribean are among the best shores that I now.

There are two more views in the WS.

As a final note, I will be travelling during the next week, and then also away from TE.

Cheers! See you soon,
Carlos
