We went on an excursion to the Tulum ruins for the day and I'm so glad we did because they are so beautiful. Not quite as spectacular as the Palenque ruins, but I think their setting is more amazing. The remains are right on the edge of the clear blue Caribbean, and surrounded with tall palms. It's like a scene made for a movie. There were also a few iguanas around and I managed to get a few good photos.
