The Tulum ruins are not just a collection of ancient stones; they are a testament to the greatness of the Mayan civilization. Strategically located by the Caribbean Sea, these ruins served as a commercial and defensive port. The Maya, in their wisdom, constructed these structures to withstand the ravages of time and nature.
