Going back in time to Tulum

Along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula sits Tulum, one of the last cities built by the Mayans.

We spent a sweltering afternoon walking among the ruins.

Mayan kings would come to Tulum as a retreat. Our little prince contemplated what it would have been like for the royals back then as they enjoyed this place of solitude.

There are new residents of Tulum in present day. Critters are running all over the place. I am not a fan of reptiles (except for belts, shoes & purses), but they were fun to observe.

It was a great afternoon strolling through Mexico's history.

Centuries later, it still feels like paradise.
