Our Mayan guide told us that Tulum was one of the last sites built. He also said that only about 100 people lived here - the royalty of the Mayan Empire. Well, all I can say is these people knew how to pick a site. I came through the small opening in the rock wall, turned left and headed for the water. Can you tell that I was starved to see the Sea?
What a gorgeous site! I loved the breeze. I confess I didn't walk the whole site. I just drank in the beauty of the sea.
As I was leaving I saw this iguana. I took several photos as he camouflaged himself. In fact, I wasn't sure looking through my view finder whether I had gotten him or not til I saw the photos on a larger screen!
This is the tiny entrance to the Tulum site. I'd say the wall is about ten feet thick...............
