Architecture and construction as we know it did not exist when these structures were built. Yet, the Mayans calculated a precise astrological account of the solstices and equinoxes, and reflected these within the location of their monuments. What a fascinating culture! When visiting, be prepared...More

We drove our rental car to Cenote Carwash. About 14mins from Tulum town. There are many others along that road that may be even better. Signs are posted clearly by the road.
