Mayan Ruins


Past and present converge in paradise

Tulum, which means ‘walled city’ in Mayan, is an astonishing place that you can’t miss if you want to feel like a true explorer of Mayan ruins.

Imagine this: you’re there, in Tulum, with its ancient structures that seem straight out of an adventure movie. From the top of the walls, you can admire the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Moreover, the buildings and murals are so well-preserved that you’ll feel like you’re in an open-air museum.

And the best part is that hotel is near the Tulum Mayan Ruins, just a 15-minute ride on an amazing bicycle journey. Plus, there are other archaeological sites to explore, so put on your helmet and get ready to pedal through history.

Come and join the Mayan adventure in Tulum! It’s like a journey through time, but with cocktails and sunscreen. We await you at the Aluna Kimpton Tulum Resort, where fun and culture go hand in hand.

Tulum Archeological Zone

Come and stroll through the ancient walled city on the cliffs overlooking Playa Ruinas!

And that’s not all! The entrances are adorned with serpent columns, and the corners feature zoomorphic masks—it’s like walking through an Indiana Jones movie but with much more style. 


Just a 30-minute drive from Kimpton Aluna Resort Tulum, you’ll find Muyil, a mysterious and ancient site in the Sian Ka’an lagoon. This Mayan site is one of the oldest and most extensive on the eastern coast of Yucatan. Get ready for a journey full of history and adventure as you uncover the secrets of this fascinating ancestral place. 

Chichen Itza

Marvel at these Mayan ruins, home to El Castillo, also known as the Temple of Kukulcan. Don’t forget to try the magical trick: touch a column and listen to the echo respond like a enchanting melody. It’s as if the stones have their own voice.
