TOURS RIVIERA MAYA
Being a magical Mayan city, Tulum, it keeps a lot of history and mysticism.
From the year 564 this ancient city located on the shore of the Caribbean Sea has been one of the greatest representatives of the Mayan culture. It is originally known as «Zamá», which means «City of dawn».
The city of Tulum is a portal to the past that allows you to enjoy the nature and history of our ancestors. At present it is a great tourist attraction of the Riviera Maya.
Mainly famous for its admirable archeological sites that reflect what the Mayan culture was hundreds of years ago. It is believed that most of these buildings were built in the post-classic period of the Mayan civilization, between 1200 and 1450. The Mayan culture gave much importance to the planning of the city according to cosmology, and so the construction of the city of Tulum was based on the concept called «the four corners» that refers to the cardinal points.
Tulum has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The light that falls over its delicate waters creates a perfect contrast with the white sand of the area. In addition, it is not only a Caribbean paradise, its beaches are also a turtle sanctuary.
The vast wealth of Tulum has given him the enormous fame he has in many parts of the world, such as its flora and fauna species, its refreshing and crystalline waters, and its great history hidden in its beautiful archaeological zone.
Located in the southeast of Mexico in the state of Quintana Roo, east of Chichén Itzá and northwest of Tulum, Cobá is an archaeological site of the Mayan culture, whose population was about 50,000 inhabitants and an area of eighty square kilometers. It reached its peak as a metropolis between 300 and 600 AD, before the existence of Chichen Itza. It was built mostly in the middle of the Classic period of the Mayan civilization in the years 500 and 900 of our era.
There is an assumption that, from 900 or 1000 AD, Coba came into conflict with Chichén Itzá, of which the latter was successful.
One of the possible meanings of «Cobá», due to its proximity to the lagoons, is «chopped water» or «water with moss».
The main pyramid «Nohoch Mul», is the highest pyramid in the Yucatan Peninsula and the second in the Mayan world, with 42 m that is equivalent to a 10-story building.
In Coba you can enjoy incredible views from the top of its pyramid and attractions such as the so-called «Estela Uno», famous because it mentions the end of an era with the date 12/12/12, which was thought to mark the end of the world.
