Tulum is an ancient Mayan city that overlooks the Caribbean Sea. While the architecture is not on the same scale as Chichen Itza or Coba, it stores a unique beauty when viewing the city in its currently preserved form. While in the past Tulum served the purpose of being a port for trade within the Mayan empire, at its current it is a reflection of history of the Maya, who have virtually ceased to exist as a dominant civilization. Only remnants of the Maya remain in small villages painted around the Yucatan peninsula, maintaining many traditions of the past while merging with some modern amenities and sensibilities.
