Cruising to the Caribbean?

If you are taking a cruise that has a stop in Cozumel, Mexico and you are considering taking an excursion to the Mayan ruins of Tulum, you might want to consider the following. 
In my many years of living and travelling in the Yucatan Peninsula, I was only able to discover a handful of Mayan sites along the coast, at least one as striking and accessible as Tulum.  This stunning Pre-Columbian Mayan site sits on top of a 12-meter cliff right overlooking the crystal clear Caribbean Sea.

Even though the Tulum ruins are not structurally large, as compared to Chichen-Itza, their location makes them one of the most visited Mayan sites in Quintana Roo, Mexico.  But due to the fact that Tulum is relatively small and there is rather little climbing to do, it is ideal if you have mobility issues and still wish to visit a Mayan archaeological site.

Due to idyllic location of Tulum, once you have visited the site you might want to consider refreshing yourself by taking a dip in the crystal blue, warm Caribbean sea with its talc like beach at the foot of the archaeological ruins, BUT be VERY weary.  Just off the coast towards the reef there used to be a resident 7ft Tiger shark.  It has never attacked a human; the shark just likes patrolling the area looking for some fish to eat. 
Nonetheless, if you do go swimming, DON’T go in too far, DON’T go in too deep, STAY close to the shoreline and KEEP AN EYE OUT AT ALL TIMES!!!
