Why Visit Tulum in Mexico?

" Inhale slowly and take in the salty air, floral incense, tropical flora, fauna, and the sweet smells. You are now in Tulum."

For decades, the attraction of ancient Mayan energies in combination with the magic of historic sites and natural wonders has brought spiritually-centred tourism to the area. Tulum is now a bustling tourist destination. It was once a peaceful beach town, home to artists and yogis. Although modern amenities and luxury hotels are available, you still have the Mayan spirit to explore. Between the thirteenth century and the fifteenth century, Tulum was the last great Mayan city built and inhabited. It was a place of worship to the Great Descending God, whose image is displayed in the temples. The great wall that surrounds the city is believed to have been built to keep out pirates and envious traders who sought to seize the location.
