    Mayan Ruins of TulumMayan Ruins of Tulum, Mexico
    this fabulous site is the location of a pre-Columbian Mayan walled city that served as a major significant port for Coba, with the ruins today occupying a 40 foot high cliff that sits on the coastline of the Yucatan Peninsula on the Caribbean side in Tulum, Mexico and had been one of the last cities constructed and inhabited by the Mayan people, with its heyday during the 13th to 15th centuries, and were able to survive about seventy years of Spanish rule. Many believe that the Spaniards would bring their diseases to this new world and the local natives would contract many of them that would eventually destroy them. It is one of the best preserved coastal Mayan sites and has grown into a very popular destination for tourist. The city is believed to have been called Zama, which means the "city of dawn" in Mayan language, and the site does face the rising sun in the mornings, as it sits on a tall bluff facing the Caribbean sea to the east. Tulum is the Mayan word for fence or wall, or trench, with the surrounding walls offering protection from any invading or attacking peoples. The city of Tulum had excellent access to the land and sea trade routes, so that it would rise to become a significant trading center, especially for the obsidian trade. There are many depictions in the murals and other images around the area that suggest it was an important site for the worship of the Diving or Descending god, and first mentioned by Juan Diaz, one of the members of the Juan de Grijalva's Spanish expedition of 1518.

    Las Pinturas Las Pinturas Tulum, Mexico
    this ancient Mayan pyramid would be named for the beautiful stucco paintings that can be seen on its walls in Tulum, Mexico. The two story temple had been constructed in two phases sometime between 1400 to 1450 AD. with outstanding decorations, relief masks and colored murals on the inner walls. Although the murals have been restored, they are still difficult to see clearly, and may have been the last and final temple built by the Mayan civilization before the Spanish arrival and conquest, with excellent columns and carvings.
