Mayan Ruins ... And Monkey-Spotting
If you’re looking for an active vacation south of the border, Tulum offers plenty of temptations beyond its white sands. Scuba and snorkel among coral reefs, cenotes and—if you’re a certified cave diver – underwater caverns, too. Above the waves, go kiteboarding, surfing, and kayaking. The cliff top walled Mayan city is a top attraction, as is the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, home to howler monkeys, jaguars, ocelots, crocodiles, and sea turtles.
