Tulum is the most picturesque archaeological site in the Riviera Maya. The greatest attraction at the Tulum Ruins is its location. Built on a bluff facing the rising sun, this ruin site is the only Maya settlement located on the beaches of the Caribbean.

Tulum is a resort town on Mexico's Caribbean coast, around 130 km south of Cancun. This 13th-century, walled Mayan archaeological site overlooks the sea. It incorporates a clifftop Castillo, built as a watchtower, and a Templo de las Pinturas, with a partially restored mural. Inland, the Coba archaeological site has pyramid-shaped temples with views overlooking the surrounding jungle. Despite its picturesque site, none of the ruins were built facing the ocean; but instead, facing the surrounding jungle -- with only one purpose: protection from storms perhaps.
