Tulum holds the honor of being the most picturesque archaeological site in the Riviera Maya, and the only one to have been built overlooking the ocean.
The most iconic of its structures, the Castillo, is perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the clear turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean.
Once a sleepy beach outpost, Tulum has become a fashionable yet decidedly low-key escape on a bohemian Grand Tour that might take in Marrakesh, Goa, and Phuket.
