Tours - Mayan Ocean : Tulum - Akumal

Site de Tulum vu de la mer

Tulum is the maritime capital of the Mayan world. When the Spanish arrived, they found it standing proudly upon a rocky ledge overlooking the Caribbean Sea. This gorgeous location, carefully chosen by its builders, makes it one of the most beautiful and visited sites in all of the Riviera Maya.
To see the site at its best you must arrive early. This way you can enjoy the fantastic landscape of the walled city before the crowds arrive. We will then board a boat that will take us out to sea to get the best vantage point of Tulum, from the water. Here you will discover all the details that the Maya used to build the site and how they incorporated navigation marks into their plans.
Our journey will then continue to the white sand of Akumal Bay, where the calm turquoise water is the refugee for numerous sea turtles that feed there.
