DAY 1

08.00am departure PRIVATE SERVICE

Departure of passengers in Cancun or Riviera Maya.

In the morning visit the archaeological site of Tulum

Tulum is one of the most visited and beautiful Mayan cities in Mexico; part of its charm lies in the fact that it was built in front of the sea, on a cliff from where the turquoise tones of the Caribbean Sea are appreciated in all its splendor.

Although it was not a very large city, Tulum played a leading role in the maritime and land trade of the area between the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries, in the period that archaeologists have classified as late Postclassic. It was precisely during this period when its main buildings were built, that is, those that we can appreciate today. Tulum also functioned as an astronomical observatory and defensive system.

Unlike other Mayan cities, it is believed that it had great autonomy, that is, that it depended neither politically nor commercially on other large cities - state. Another important fact is that Tulum was inhabited when the Spanish arrived in 1518, but because of the conquest, slavery and disease, it was soon abandoned. Then, the jungle found itself burying it in oblivion, and had to wait several centuries to be rediscovered. The Laguna de Bacalar is popularly known as the Laguna de los Siete Colores because seven different shades of blue can be distinguished between its waters, since it is formed by seven different cenotes, whose waters were embroidered and constituting a single lagoon, its shape is narrow and long, being 42 km long and only 2 km at its widest point. The Laguna de Bacalar is one of the few bodies of permanent surface water of the península de Yucatán, whose calcareous soil does not allow the supericial retention of the liquid, thus forming underground streams and cenotes, with the exception of the Bacalar region and the south of Quintana Roo, where the Lagoon is part of a large system along with other smaller lagoons, such as the Laguna Guerrero or Laguna Milagros, that are occasionally joined during the rainy seasons through gouges and swamps with the Río Hondo and the Bahía de Chetumal. Unlike other parts of the peninsula, this system of lagoons, river and bay allowed communications and development of the south of Quito. and then to the lagoon of Bacalar.
