Tulum Excursion from the Akumal Bay Hotel Mexico July 2018

Footage from our trip to Tulum – ancient Mayan port and trading centre just south of Akumal Bay. A gap in the coral reef due to underground freshwater streams flowing out to sea and mixing with the salt water to cause conditions where coral could not grow was the reason why this place became so important as a trading centre – and our excellent guide Rebecca explained what the various buildings had been used for – and that the vast majority of the people lived outside the walled central trading area in timber structures which have obviously long since disappeared. Fascinating and very picturesque place – well worth a visit! Thanks to Tim at the Akumal Bay Hotel travel centre for arranging the tour for us. RM 🙂
