Wouldn’t you know it: Tulum is NOT safe!
Wouldn’t you know it: Tulum is NOT safe. No sooner do I (yesterday) post a blog article saying that Tulum is a safe tourist destination in the Yucatan, than a news feed announces the mysterious death of a family in Tulum!
Missing Iowa Family Found Dead in Tulum Condo
The Sharp family consisted of 41-year-old Kevin, his 38-year-old wife Amy, and their 12- and 7-year-old daughter and son. However, according to the News WXPI article, there does not seem to be indications of foul play. Strange. So, what caused their death?
Tourists flock to Tulum and the Riviera Maya
Tulum, which is along the Caribbean Sea in the Mexican State of Quintana Roo, is located south of Cancun in the Riviera Maya. Normally, I would consider it a safe destination and have visited the archeological site there many times.
Many rate the beach at the Tulum archeological site, (see photo above), the best in the Yucatan. Plus, visitors at the Mayan ruins enjoy the relatively compact site compared with such sprawling ruins as Chichen Itza.
Combined with the site’s closeness to Cancun and its international airport, the beaches, and the Mayan ruins, many Yucatan visitors feel drawn to Tulum. But, will they want to stay overnight in Tulum in the future?
