Tulum in pre-Hispanic times played a very important role, since its geographical location was a common route for the trading of goods from Central America to the Aztec people of Central Mexico. Tulum was a natural port where countless goods were exchanged such as cocoa seeds, honey, fish, deer hides, jaguar skins, quetzal feathers, and much more.

It is protected by a spectacular reef, there are theories that the castle which is the main building was used as the main point of reference, kind of like a lighthouse to help the sailors navigate the safest areas to enter and how to avoid the dangerous reefs that protect Tulum.

Tulum templos Only here we have stories or legends like this, and customs that will be explained by our guides. All of the guides are experts in the area and they will transport you to the past.
