We also visited the ruins in Tulum. It covers a much smaller area than Coba and was manageable by just walking. Here is Cole with our tour guide, Mosiah.
We learned that in order to get all of the Mormon inside info, you find a tour guide with a BYU hat.
We arrived at Tulum at the about the same exact time as a European Cruise Ship.
There were SOOO many people.
It was interesting to listen to our Mormon tour guide's explanation of things in comparison to the other tour guide's explanation of things.
Our tour guide, Mosiah, had explanations and connections to Mormonism for everything.
It was interesting. I need to add lots of these things to my "list" of questions.
Mosiah is a branch president south of Tulum. His brother is the Stake President in Cancun.
His brother's names are Helaman, Moroni, Samuel, and Lemuel.
Tulum is right on the beach and we had planned on finishing our tour with a little dip in the ocean.
But, there were just too many people (I cut them out of this photo. This pic makes it look quiet, but really there were 100's of people on the beach and in the water). We ended up finishing our tour of Tulum and driving down a ways to a more secluded beach. We could still see the ruins from there though.
