Magical walled city on a cliff in front of the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea
It has a small hotel corridor with a clear bohemian atmosphere, which begins on the south side of the archaeological site and ends right at the door of the Sian Ka’an Sanctuary.
The establishments are in complete harmony with the natural environment and offer a unique experience of peace and tranquility. Various hotels offer meditation, yoga, temazcal and massage services, among others.
In Mayan times, this city was known by the name of Zamá, which means “Dawn,” and it was an important Mayan city, both as a ceremonial and commercial center. The name of Tulum, which means “Wall” or “Palizada”, in allusion to the wall that is preserved, was used since the site was in ruins.
