Tulum is a must if one is in Cancun. Booked a tour. Continental breakfast was provided for on board. The Mayan village stopped at was squalid in comparison to the ones near Chicen Itza. Beer and cakes were provided as a snack but given the overcast weather no one seemed to be in a party mood. In comparison to Chicen Itza the archaeological remains were minor but what an amazing backdrop of white sand and ocean. Lunch was at Xelha with excellent fish and the sweetest tomatoes I have ever had. On to Akumel which was a collection of hotels on a spectacular beach. Unfortunately a rain storm made swimming problematic.
