The weather has been warm and sunny this week, and there have been occasional showers but we can tell that it's gearing up to be a wonderful summer again in the Mayan Riviera. We are enjoying the sun with our kids and taking some exploratory trips towards the pretty little Muyil ruins which are a great place nearby to see a well-cared for archaeological site.
It's small but the ruins are impressive and the area is lovely. Just look at these nice walking paths. I took lots of great photographs and could have stayed much longer but the kids were getting antsy.
Like many of these locations around Mexico, there is a Virgin de Guadalupe prominently displayed. Every time we have visited, there is a candle lit in her honor. A few times, we saw visitors stop and pray before the little shrine before moving on to view the ruins. These ruins are a short drive from Tulum and worth a visit. If pitaya (dragon fruit) is in season, you can find little carts selling it nearby, pick up a few because the fruit is delicious and you can purchase it very cheaply down here.
