Mayan ruins vacation

Staying at El Paraiso Beach Hotel not only means being no more than a few steps away from Tulum's famous beaches, it also means having easy access to the area's other big attraction—its Mayan ruins. No other place gives you the chance to upgrade your beach holiday to a Mayan ruins vacation, mainly because Tulum is the only place in Mexico that boasts oceanfront Mayan ruins.

The Mayan ruins in Tulum are unique in this respect, and while not as grand and massive as Chichen Itza, they are nonetheless impressive in their own right. El Castillo, the site's most imposing building is an awe-inspiring sight, especially when approached from the water. The ruins as a whole are what remain of what was once a prosperous walled city of the Middle to Late Post classic age, which dates approximately from the 13th to the 16th centuries. Still in relatively good shape, they are a good first stop for those on a Mayan ruins vacation.
