That´s Ruined my Trip….. Get thee to a punnery

Now that I have your attention, on the 23rd and 24th of Jan we visited a town called Tulum on the Yucatan coast. Tulum is a small laid-back Mexican town with far less gringos than Cancun or Playa Del Carmen, and set on a very beautiful stretch of beach. It is also famous for its ruins (get it, ruined my trip. Heh. I am the pun-king). The ruins are what is left of the ancient Mayan city of Tulum (1200 AD). Zama (as it was known, meaning the dawn city) was an important trading port for the Mayan people of the Yucatan peninsula. The city is spectacularly set on an ocean-facing cliff.

In addition to visiting the Zama ruins, we snorkelled in the Cenotes (see the next entry), took a dip in the Carribean sea and walked along the beautiful coastline.
