Synopsis: If you are going to visit the Mayan ruins of Tulum in Quintana Roo, Mexico (or have already) you need to read this book. It is chock-full of fun, weird, odd, and wacky bits of the history of the place that you will not find anywhere else. Also included are a short introduction to the history of the Tulum Maya, the early Spanish contacts with Tulum, the archaeology of the site, descriptions of the main buildings, and the stories of why and how they were built. In 1985, during a project carried out by the Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia (INAH) and funded by a grant from the National Geographic Society, author Ric Hajovsky paddled a dug-out canoe over the reef to land on the beach at Tulum in an effort to test the theory that the Maya intended El Castillo to be used as a lighthouse. Later, he traveled the entire coast of Panama from the border of Costa Rica south to Colombia in Don Tiki, his 45-foot-long, ocean-going dugout which was similar to the type the Maya used to carry trade-goods from as far north as Tabasco to as far south as Honduras. Read more about Ric and his archaeological and ethnographical adventures in Mexico, Spain, Panama, Suriname, Amazonian Peru, and Spain, by visiting his web site: www.EverythingCozumel.com Other books of Ric’s available from Amazon.com as either eBooks or paperbacks: * The Yellow Guide to the Mayan Ruins of San Gervasio, Cozumel * Cozumel Survival Manual * The Lost Kivas of San Lazaro *2012: Everything you need to know to understand what the fuss is all about * The Adventures of Trader Ric in Kuna Yala * The Adventures of Trader Ric on the Trail of Cristóbal Colon * The Adventures of Trader Ric at the Headwaters of the Tapanahonie * The Adventures of Trader Ric in the Darien Gap * Spain: Hidden Secrets and Dirty Tricks; how to travel in Spain in high style, but at a budget price
