In pre-Columbian times, Tulum was an important commercial port that linked the Mayans with other cultures from the center and south of the continent. Without a doubt, a trip to Tulum is one of the Riviera Maya tours that you cannot miss on your trip.
2.- Experiencias Xcaret. The best parks in town
Surely you have heard of Xcaret, one of the most famous ecotourism parks in the world. Millions of travelers love this place because its creators managed to condense much of the natural color, as well as the traditional crafts, dances and music of Mexico in one place.

Snorkel among multicolored fish, rays, turtles, octopuses and many other marine species. Puerto Morelos Reef National Park, part of the second largest barrier reef in the world, is just a few minutes by boat from the beach.
The Cenotes Route (La Ruta de los Cenotes)
We told you before about the meteorite that extinguished the dinosaurs and fell relatively close to the Riviera Maya. The impact of that asteroid fractured the earth, creating a system of underground rivers throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. At some points, the roof of the caves in that system collapsed, exposing their liquid treasure. These points are known as cenotes, and you can swim in several of them! Take a dive into the natural pools of the Ruta de los Cenotes, they are incredible!
