Tulum

Tulum is a major Mayan archeological site and Federal park about 45 minutes south of our hotel in Xcaret.


As well as the ruins themselves there are good beaches. All seafront beaches in Mexico are public.



These are the Pole Flyers or voladores - they climb a pole about 50 feet high, spin around at the top and descend, upside down, by ropes spun outward from the drum at the top. It's as mad as it looks.
