The word Tulum means fence, trench or wall

The Tulum Ruins are the third most-visited archaeological site in Mexico, after Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza. It is popular for the picturesque view of the Caribbean. The Maya site may have been formerly also known by the name Zama, meaning city of Dawn. Tulúm is also the Yucatec Mayan word for fence or wall (or trench), and the walls surrounding the site allowed the Tulum fort to serve as a defense against invasion. It is the only ruins that were still inhabited when the Spanish arrived.The walls surrounding the site allowed Tulum fort to serve as a defense against an invasion. Once you see this fortress nestled along the coast you can really see its strength. Once you exit the boat you will not have to stand in the long line of tourist you enter from the ocean you walk right into the ruins where a guide awaits to tell you about the ancient Mayan peoples who once inhabited the beautiful ocean location. Most of the structures now visible were built in the Post-Classic Era, between about 1200 and 1450. The city remained occupied through the early years of the Spanish conquest of Yucatan, but was abandoned in by the end of the 16th century. Local Maya continued to visit the temples to burn incense and pray until the late 20th century.
