We would love to come to Chile! I am Ukrainian and need visa to enter this country. But maybe our next visit to South America will be Chile :)
Built on a bluff facing the rising sun, the Tulum Ruins site is the only Maya settlement that overlooks the Caribbean. The views continue to be described as spectacular and millions of people visit this Maya ruin in the Riviera Maya. We are happy we visited it as well!
Certainly, Tulum is a not to be missed archeological site. It is very interesting to walk around and to learn more about Maya culture and the way they organized their houses and nearby territory. The buildings are small scale and low in complexity, height and quality.
Tulum Ruins is a Late Postclassic site along the coast on an impressive 45 foot cliffside overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Its location unites the land and a sea and a sky. And it unites the Maya and the Spanish. Once Tulum was an ancient Mayan fortress city that rose to power toward the end of the Classic period. Nowadays it is the most picturesque archaeological site in the Riviera Maya.
Where is the iguana?
Tulum iguanas posing for pictures :)
It was first time I saw iguana in reality. It was quite fast when running and funny when moving its head up and down :)
"This" was the first "attraction" we saw when entered the Tulum Ruins :)
Quite creepy (but seemed like friendly) iguanas were everywhere. They so used to be surrounded by people that did not hide at all, running around without any fear of tourists.
This is me on a path to visit the Tulum ruins! We just arrived and were excited for a new “ruins” experience :)
Sometimes it makes sense for us to rent a car while we travel. It makes it easier to drive to a certain point of destination without any obstacles and difficulties figuring out transportation. This was our rented car for driving around Yucatan. It was not amazing but I had the best driver who makes any trip a wonderful experience :)
This Caribbean shore was perfect!
Wonderful hotel beach in Tulum!
I was reading my e-book as well. I wish I remember exactly what book I was reading that moment.
Enjoying our time on the beach reading our books :)
There is Clinton reading his book about Free market Austrian economics! :)
Motivation phrase on the beach :)
