Culture or Beach Vacation? With Tulum You Don't Have to Choose
When it comes to choosing a location for your next vacation, you won't have to choose between the beach and culture when you go to Tulum, Mexico.
Located on the Yucatán Peninsula, Tulum has dry wather in December through April. Christmas through Spring break is naturally the busiest season. The best way to travel to Tulum is through the Cancun airport - only 4.5 hours flight from Los Angelesp International Airport (LAX). It's about an hour and a half's drive from the airport, with inclusive resorts, while retaining the cultural charms.
The city was built in the thirteenth century and, unlike Cancún, it has preserved ruins as well as pristine beaches. When it comes to choosing a location for your next vacation, you won't have to choose between the beach and culture.
If thirteenth century history in the Americas interests you, you will not want to pass up any opportunity to visit Tulum. Perched on the cliffs above the pristine turqouise Caribbean, the walled Mayan city of Tulum faces east and boasts spectacular sunrises.

"There are many Maya archaeological sites throughout the peninsula; some of the better-known are Chichen Itza, Tulum and Uxmal. Indigenous Maya and Mestizos of partial Maya descent make up a sizable portion of the region's population, and Mayan languages are widely spoken there." Wikipedia
