Take a tour of Beaches and Ruins of Tulum in Mexico – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. Whether you're a beach-goer or a historian at heart, Tulum is your place. This beautiful piece of Mexican coastline is home to Mayan ruins roughly 800 years old. The beach here is almost as amazing: pristine white sand and glowing blue water. The ruins are part of a city that lasted until 70 years after the Spanish Conquest. Even after its abandonment, some Mayans continued to use the temple until fairly recently. At less than a hundred miles away from Cancun, Tulum is an easy-to-reach destination. The sense of ancient, mystery and the gorgeous beaches will make a lasting memory.
