Each Mayan city had a specific purpose, and Tulum was no exception. It was a seaport, trading mainly in turquoise and jade. As well as being the only Mayan city built on a coast, Tulum was one of the few protected by a wall. Made of limestone, the 784-meter wall encloses the site on three sides, is seven meters thick, and varies between three and five meters in height. You will see the House of Cenote, the mysterious Temple of the Wind God, the beautiful Temple of Paintings and Tulum’s tallest building The Castle. With essential background knowledge provided by the archaeologist guide, you’ll easily imagine how this city once served as a major seaport. You can also jump in the water at its beautiful beach and enjoy the unique view of the ruins from the water.
