Thinking of Cancun as a pure beach thing for a vacation might be interesting for people who want to do nothing but relax and hang out at the pool bar. For people with a bit more energy in their tanks the place has more to offer, specially for those who are interested in history. The ruins of ancient Tulum are just a 2 hour drive away from Cancun. Tulum is an amazing place to visit. Let’s travel back in time.
Walking around Tulum ruins and exploring the seights takes around 3 hours. There is a public sandy beach at the sea side of the Mayan Riviera that can be accessed by wooden stairs.
