Picture Perfect

When it comes to a picture perfect setting, the pre-columbian Maya walled city of Tulum scores pretty highly. Located on the Riviera Maya, south of Cancun, it is the only Mayan site to be built overlooking the ocean. Its ancient name was 'Zuma' meaning 'place of the dawning sun', given due to its situation on a cliff facing east towards the beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean. It's a small site, and can get pretty crowded, but the best part is taking a dip in the sea, literally a two minute walk from the site.
