#92 Tulum, Mexico


Tulum (YucatecTulu'um) is the site of a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city serving as a major port for Cobá. The ruins are situated on 12-meter (39 ft) tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana RooMexico. Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayans, it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have been the cause of its demise.



Thank you, Katrina !

Haha.. kohe näha kuna need kaardid sealt postkastist üldse välja vist võeti, kuid samas annab lootust, et umbes kuu-kahe pärast jõuab üks Eestisse ka :D Muide Jamaica kaardid jõudsid Eestisse alles eelmine nädal.
