Upon arriving at your Tulum, the ancient city of Zamá, which in the Mayan language means “sunrise”, it is to touch the sky, what struck me the most were the archaeological sites built by the Mayans.
Raúl, my tour guide, told me that those who lived here were excellent navigators, and this area served as an excellent commercial port in the old days, due to its perfect location in front of the Mexican Caribbean Sea.
In addition to this, Raúl told me that this area served as an epicenter to study the stars, the fascination of the Mayans for the stars was so great that the city was completely dedicated to the planet Venus. Something curious that he told me is that the first building was built in the area, which ended up being the astronomical tower and later, the plot was built around it.
How great is the history of Tulum, after being here I think that there is much to discover and that the gods do not want us to find out about something great now.
This was part of my first experience stepping on this heavenly place, there is a lot that can be done in so little, you just have to have excellent planning and advice.
Chichén Itzá is an ancient Mayan city that was built in the middle of the jungle in the Yucatán Peninsula, it used to be the home of a prosperous civilization during the pre-Columbian era and there are many historical accounts about how and when Chichén Itzá was built. You should definitely visit this place, I kept the best panoramic views with the pyramids in the background.
Museum of Mayan Culture
On the second day I visited the Museum of Mayan Culture, I was able to visit it and I was impressed because it is one of the most important museum venues of the Mayan civilization in Mexico.
This museum captures the way of life, everyday life and architectural grandeur of the Mayan culture, as well as its calendrical system and worldview. Artistic representations, scenery and lighting are the basis of the exhibition.
Tumbe Ka Park
I dedicated the third day only to Tumbe Ka Park, this is usually a very common place that we could find in any country. I felt free to walk along its long paths surrounded by green vegetation. I took advantage of the moment to practice some basketball on their covered court and enjoy a delicious ice cream in the rest areas.
If you come to Tulum you cannot miss some of these captivating experiences.
