What a place! This is an ancient Mayan fort where they used to control the waterways on the Yucatan Peninsula. This is a treasure of Mayan artifacts, and I recommend that everyone go see this. We had to make a choice to either go north to visit Chichen-Itza or south to visit Tulum and Coba. We decided to go south.

If you've seen the move "Against All Odds," Tulum is the place where Jeff Bridges finds Rachel Ward. You can't go in the buildings anymore, but it really is fascinating, and you can really feel the Mayan culture here. I recommend that you take kids and adults—it's a great way to see what we learn in history and feel like a part of it. Oh, and take lots of water, as it is humid.
