Tulum is the site of a pre-Columbian Mayan walled city which served as a major port for Coba. Tulum was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya; managing to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. One of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites, Tulum is today a popular site for tourists.
Tulum offers the perfect combination of total relaxation, tranquility and seclusion immersed in a spectacular white-sand coastline – with cobalt water and balmy breezes – making it one of the top beaches in Mexico and the world.
Tulum is a town on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It’s known for its beaches and well-preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan port city. The main building is a large stone structure called El Castillo (castle), perched on a rocky cliff above the white sand beach and turquoise sea. Near the ruins is the Parque Nacional Tulum, a coastal area with mangroves and cenotes (natural limestone sinkholes).

Tulum is a magical destination where ancient Mayan culture and natural beauty meet. One of the most photographed or SELFIE centered artworks is AHUA at Raw Love Cafe. AHUA was known as the Mayan God of the Sun. In the Classic period and the Postclassic period, he was referred to either as Ahau Kin (Ahaw K'in) or Kinich Ahau (K'inich Ahau, K'inich Ajaw). Every morning he would bring the sun up for the Mayans and every night bring it down. He was a very important god to the city of Itzamal. Their believe was that Kinich Ahau visited the city everyday at noon when the sun was directly above them, then he would come down to earth in the form of a parrot and take the offerings that the city gave him. Kinich Ahau was the sun, and was believed to turn into a jaguar as he went through Xibalbá each night. He was the patron of the day Muluc (also spelled Muluk), and was associated with Maya rulers and warriors as well as jaguars.
The ancient Maya had over 150 Gods in their complex religion, each with clearly defined characteristics and purposes. Here’s the list of the top five Mayan Gods of all time: Itzamn, Chac, Ah Mun, Ah Puch, and Ak Chuah. A GrinGO App favorite is Xaman Ek who was the God of Travelers!
