Zamá Castle
(14)
With its spectacular position on a cliff top, Tulum is a Mayan site that had its heyday from 1200 until the arrival of the Spanish invaders. The name, meaning "enclosure" or "wall" is probably of modern origin. It is thought that the place was originally called Zama (dawn), referring to its situation in the east coast and west-east alignment of its buildings. The inhabitants traded with places such as Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Mexico and Central Guatemala. It has a perimeter wall 5 meters thick with three doors enclosed on three of the sides of the area. Perhaps the most photographed part is the Temple of the Wind, which whistles when a hurricane is approaching, but there are others that also deserve a visit, such as the Descending God Temple and the Temple that surmounts the castle and which has three niches above the entrance, or the Temple of the Frescoes, which was used as an observatory to monitor movements of the sun and whose walls are decorated with paintings of mythological snakes. in abundance A typical image which is unique and we can see if we go down to the beach for a while and try to get away from the waves of tourists that invade the place ....

Fort of San Felipe of Bacalar

At the end of our tour in Costa Maya, we visited the main historical monument: Fort San Felipe. It was built in the eighteenth century due to an order by the governor of Yucatan, Antonio de Figueroa y Silva, to defend the city from being attacked by the pirates going through Laguna de los 7 Colores (from the strong features breathtaking panoramic views of the same ). The fort is built in stone with a quadrangular structure, and it is surrounded by a moat (now turned into a garden with figures of Mayan and Spanish) with a drawbridge at the main entrance. It has 4 bastions, one at each corner, called Santa Ana, San Antonio, San Jose and San Joaquin. Architect Jorge Agostoni turned one of them into a museum, and it was later declared to be a National Historic Landmark. The Piracy Museum is dedicated to the region's history. It exhibits archaeological Mayan and colonial objects (weapons, ammunition, everyday utensils, plans and maps ..). Visitors will also see the mural which was created by Elio Carmichael, and is representative of the most important historical events of the region. The entrance to the fort costs 20 pesos (must be paid in pesos). Mexicans visiting on Sundays are granted a free visit. The museum is open the following days and times: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, from 9 to 19h, as well as Friday and Saturday from 9 to 20h.
