Tulum and Cenote Azul

Tulum, Mexico

We visited the beautiful Tulum Ruins when we were in Cancun. Tulum ruins are a symbol of the once great Mayan era which extended for a good 2000 years before the Spanish invasion of Mexico.

We took a private tour (a big van with just driver and us). This gave s the flexibility on when we go and how much time we spend. The whole tour was for duration of 7 hours end to end. We were picked up and dropped off at Ritz carlton Cancun.

The Ruins themselves are majestic and standing on the cliff side the main portion of the ruin is stunning. The Tulum beach while not as eye popping as Playa Norte, is still very scenic.

There is a small stairway down to the beach.

The ruin has wild animals like Coatees and Iguanas.

It does get very hot and humid after noon, so we decided to wrap up the ruins visit after an hour and half. We then had lunch at the Oscar and Lalo's. Authentic Mexican food and great desserts.

Cenote Azul

on the way back to Cancun we visited Cenote Azul. Cenotes are natural sink holes occurring mainly in regions with soft rocks/limestones which get eroded by underground water and start caving in. Yucatan has the world's most extnsince network of underground rivers and cenotes and some of the more famous cenotes are surreal.

A beginner's/smaller open cenote, Azul was kid friendly.

After this beautiful cenote visit we headed back to cancun and reached the Ritz Carlton before evening.
