Tulum Archaeological Zone

The Mayan ruins in Mexico at the The Tulum Archaeological Zone are a must-visit during your vacation. Tulum was known to be one of the last great cities constructed by the Maya and an important religious and trade location. The city was built on a cliff, surrounded by an impressive limestone wall. Tulum’s pyramid is the most notable structure that was once a lighthouse. Another remarkable highlight is the Temple of the Frescoes, where you can see a beautifully preserved mural inside.

Coba Ruins

Coba was once the most prominent commercial city built by the Maya in the Yucatan Peninsula. The town’s success is attributed to its location between two lagoons and its position along trade routes. The largest pyramid here is open for visitors to climb to the top. The top of the pyramid offers picturesque views of the jungles and the other archaeological sites. One of the other distinguishing aspects of this archaeological site is the sacbes or white roads that connect the ruins.

Xcaret Park

Xcaret Park is an ecological theme park where you can experience over 50 attractions, including archaeological remains. This park is an excellent option for families traveling in Mexico since it combines history with fun. The ruins within the park highlight a Mayan community known for its maritime trade.
