On one of the days, we decided to visited Tulum. Tulum is about 50 min away from Playa Del Carmen and less crowded then Playa del Carmen or Cancun. On the day we visited, it was miserably hot so we couldn't really walk around for long. We visited the city centre filled with a number of stores and the famous TULUM signboard as well the ruins. We couldn't take our car all the way to where the ruins were located, so we parked it in the centre and walked quite a bit. Little did we know there was a trolley bus thingy to take us the the spot. What sets these ruins apart from the rest is its beautiful backdrop of the Caribbean sea. You may encounter some lizards as well!
