We drive first south, parallel to the Caribbean coast, to Tulum. In Tulum we will visit the only archeological site directly build along the Caribbean coast. Tulum is one of the youngest archaeological sites which can be visited. The city, of which we do not know the original name, was still inhabited when the Spaniards, around 1545, finally conquered the east coast of the Yucatan peninsula. Ninety years later the city was finally left by their inhabitants probably because of the introduction of diseases brought by the Spaniards from Europe. Tulum was a important commercial city build directly at the shore of the Caribbean coast. Boats would leave Tulum with product from the Yucatan peninsula to the Gulf of Mexico or south to, the present day, Belize and Guatemala. From there they would bring back product which were not easily available on the peninsula.

After the visit in Tulum  we will go to Yalku. Yalku is situated in Akumal and is a lagoon along the Caribbean coast.  Before starting with the snorkeling and swimming we will have a small lunch in Yalku. The Yalku lagoon is connected with the Caribbean by a small opening which protects the lagoon even on a windy day. It is probably the best shore snorkeling place along the Riviera MayaThe water in the inlet is refreshed by some subterranean rivers.
