For another "shore excursion" during our cruise, Meghan and I visited the Mayan ruins of Tulum. In this post, you saw photographs from our ferry ride from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen. Now, I could have been happy with just that boat ride, but the day got even better.
The weather was perfect for a history buff like me to walk around these ruins, which were constructed sometime between 1200 and 1450. Our helpful guide provided lots of information (although, to be fair, I ran around a little bit taking photos while he was talking).
p.s. I cheated a bit with these photos. I used photoshop to make some of them black and white. Thought they looked better this way. I think you'll agree.
