Tulum Quintana Roo Side A and B Chapter 01
Destinations’ Analysis by Franco Magno
Hi! all my Magno hardened travelers once again. Tulum, western coast of the Yucatan peninsula, state of Quintana Roo is a provincial coastal, magical village too.
The “Magical Villages” (Pueblos Mágicos) is a program created by the government of Mexico to make all those typical and traditional Mexican villages stand out because of their elements, which give them an air of pure Mexican folk lifestyle. A magical village represents lots of benefits to the site that holds this distinctive.
Tulum holds this recognition concerning its unique and quaint, fabulous attractions that combine to deliver an haute-cuisine dish to travelers from any corner of the world.
Any visitor will find abundant and lush nature, beautiful beaches, and a Maya archaeological site that will reveal part of the great mysteries of the latest stage of ancient Maya culture.
Welcome to Tulum. Welcome to the heart of Maya Riviera. Let’s go then to Magno side A and side B of Tulum, Quintana Roo.
The archaeological zone of Tulum by itself. The so-called walled city established around 564 A.D. is the only archaeological site open to visitors in Mexico, next to the shore of the Mexican Caribbean Sea.
Located approximately 230 km (142.91 miles) from Cancun international vacation center, here you can find different manifestations of the ancestral Maya culture architecture in temples such as the pyramid “El Castillo,” which represents the main ceremonial building of the site.
You’ll also marvel your eyes with the “Templo de la Serie Inicial,” the temples to the Maya god of the wind, the “Casa del Cenote,” and the one enshrined to the Maya descending god.
Essential services complement a perfect traveling plan to rejoice all of your senses.
Having said that, Tulum’s village rounds up any stay perfectly by offering journeyers hotels and lodging options for about any budget, besides exquisite culinary options to please any liking.
Local tour operators also provide eco-tourism rides to the surrounding marvels close to Tulum, like the divine and paradisiacal lagoon of “Kaan Luum” just minutes away from the village downtown.
Tulum is one of the several points along the Maya Riviera where any human being can impress their senses with the majestic nature show that will be starring in front of their eyes, courtesy of the Mexican Caribbean Sea.
Tulum also sees how a segment of the Mesoamerican Reef Barrier runs in front of its beaches. It’s located just a few meters from Tulum’s shores.
This way, for example, if you’re fond of scuba-diving, depending on the year’s season, you’ll find great opportunities to immerse into those blue turquoise waters to find specimen of either, local and migrant marine species, all those populating the surroundings of the marvelous scenarios belonging to the Mesoamerican reef barrier.
However, so much beauty comes with a price to pay. I still remember that visit I made in May 2015 when a sea flea stung me on my chest. Nothing to call a hospital or emergency services at all about. In fact, I certainly didn’t feel anything, nor I had significant consequences.
So, my dear Magno travelers don’t’ forget a coral reef is a kind of universe apart, where hundreds of flora and fauna species come to a magnificent living party.
Please keep this in mind every time you swim on beaches near coral reefs. Tulum is no exception to the rule.
Tulum is also a cornerstone for additional trips into Maya Riviera wonders. This small magical village reunites great treasures for globe-trotters.
I certainly recommend not to miss the village’s downtown and in its surroundings.
By the way, a Magno tip from me to you for Tulum expeditions. Set 2 or 3 days apart on your traveling schedule to have the opportunity to admire the basics of these fantastic lands. Those days will give you the essential spirit of Tulum, the spirit of the lush and exuberant easternmost latitudes of Mexico.
