Culture in Mexico

On a two hour drive from Cancun, a well-known ancient Mayan city can be found, namely Tulum. Here, ruins of the Maya history are located on a sea cliff. Because it is surrounded by a stone wall on three sides, the ruins’ name is Tulum meaning wall in the Mayan language. The Mayans were one of the ancient cultures who lived in Mexico before the Spanish conquered the country. Nowadays there are still some of them living in Mexico. Their story tells that they called themselves “Corn People”.
