In Tulum, stay at the Shambala Petit Hotel, a cluster of thatched rustic luxury cottages/cabanas right on the beach. The complex looks like a small native village in the middle of nowhere. Don't be fooled by the relaxed, rustic appearance; the service is superb and the food is delicious. Our cottage (cabana) faced the ocean and there were times during the day when we felt that we were the only people there with nothing but the sand, the ocean and gentle breezes shifting through the white sheers of the cabana. Heaven! The nearby Mayan ruin is a pleasant place. Although it is miniscule by all standards, it has a flawless location since it sits on a rock promontory looking out over the white sand stretching in both directions and the gently stirring turquiose waters running to the distant horizon.

Site fabuleux au bord de la mer des Caraïbes. A voir à tout prix ! Tout le Yucatan regorge de pyramides et de ruines somptueuses. Les mexicains sont accueillants et la nourriture est miam trop trop bon !! A Coba, vous découvrirez perdu dans la jungle les ruines d'une des plus grandes pyramides non restaurées, à vos risques et perils de monter au sommet ! enfin... c'est plutôt la descente qui est difficile !

Okay, if you are planning a trip to Cancun or anywhere in that area, then you have to go down to the ruins at Tulum.  While there are other, more famous Mayan ruins throughout the region, Tulum has to be the most beautiful, especially since it was built right on a cliff overlooking the ocean.  In fact, you can bring your swimsuit and take a dip in you want in the ocean right down on the beach just a short walk down a path from the ruins themselves.
