Mayan Ruins

The Mayan ruins of Tulum, Chichen Itza, and Coba draw visitors from around the world annually. Tulum, the smallest of the three historical sites, is perched on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean sea. Chichen Itza, the largest, is 120 miles from Cancun and it’s Kukulkan Pyramid is now one of the new seven wonders of the world. Coba is one of the lesser-known sites in a jungle setting surrounded by two lagoons. There are 120 steps to the top of the main pyramid; which you can still climb but it is a steep trek.


The Riviera Maya is home to many cenotes, which are part of an underground river system. You can snorkel, scuba dive, swim, and even rappel down into some of the deeper cenote caverns. The La Ruta de Los Cenotes stretches from Tulum to just north of Playa del Carmen. Spend a day exploring some of the top cenotes in the area, and there are also resorts in the region that have a cenote on the premises.
